Hmmm, yet another Medical Center in NY City with a computer facility
running GCG. This is really interesting.
I guess I can get $40 for a copy of this magnum opus (if Dr. John Hill, my
predecessor here doesn't already have one lying around somewhere). What would
be more interesing to me would be to put the whole thing up on the Web- but I
guess that would kind of put a damper on you business of selling the thing.
Let me know if you can think of any kind of collaborative projects we might get
Oops- I just found it on my book shelf "Copyright 1992 by Mark Reboul" have
you updated it for GCG v8 and do you plan to update for v9? I'm also interested
in your general services as a biological computing resource. We are trying to
improve are services to users at NYU and I am looking for ideas. Can you point
me to a web page to look at your site?
