Thank you for your answer, as unimitable as ever. We do of course have
to wash one plate at a time when we each feel the pinch of hunger; but as we
do so we should not forget that the PDB is the Central Planning Office, and
that the order for that industrial-scale dishwasher has to be filed and
lobbied for if it is ever to be delivered. Otherwise we will continue
washing our own plates for ever.
Besides, on the serious side of the argument, there are other benefits
to the deposition of images, as argued in the paper by Joosten et al. in the
recent Acta D volume containing the proceedings of last year's CCP4 Study
With best wishes,
