Gee, a discontented Histonetter!!

Histotechs were so isolated before the histonet that they are making up for 
all those years of being buried in the lab. I think it's great to be able to 
ask any old question and get other peoples' ideas and methods of doing 
things. I appreciate the questions about basic procedures: Something 
interesting always pops up!  Those are the ones you have to deal with by the 
minute so might as well be able to find and try other ways of doing things. 
Gone are the days of learning something one way and then doing it that way 
for 30 years!

Erwin, If you were in Two Dot, Montana, you would love the Histonet for the 
'stupid' questions.

I do not understand what is going on. Every week some stupid question: 
water bath ,blades etc. Most of you are lab Mgr. can you make a educated 
on your own or you always have somebody make it for you? Get the #2,3, or 
pencil which works for you  clean the blades with any solvent  which removes 
oil, get any water bath which will do the job. Please make a decision and  
get on
with it.
