I've had many problems myself with yeast colonies, though I am not familiar 
with the paper you mentioned.  The thing that seems to work the best is to 
put a smidge into 5O ul of TE, add glass beads to halfway to the miniscus, 
boil the whole mess for 2 or 3 minutes, vortex it for one more, and use 1 
ul in a 10 ul reaction.  It's tedious I know but it's the only reliable one 
I've used.

If ANYONE HAS A BETTER ONE please post it.....
