Phase one complete

Today I finished running the series of experiments needed for an upcoming "methods" article. It's all been done and reproduced in seven days' worth of lab work, including the initial fumbling by me, a switcheroo of our model system, and some troglodyte bumping into the equipment. Not bad for a week's work - not bad at all.

What's even better is that the results more than confirm our initial hypothesis, further improving the odds of getting the future article into the journal we're aiming for. Two things remain; (i) working up the data properly and (ii) writing the actual article. Of the two, the data work-up is sure to be the most tedious and time-consuming. Still, it's not purely wishful thinking to aim for a December submission to the journal in question.

Hellz yezz!
