Fwd: What's the beef?

From:"Dr. Ian Montgomery." <ian.montgomery@bio.gla.ac.uk> (by way of histonet)

         Postings are not always technical enquiries regarding a particular
histology technique, some ask about equipment. So, when you air your views
you don't expect the threat of legal action. I know the majority of
companies are really good with advice, demos, freebies etc, plus a good
service engineer is a joy to behold.
         Sorry for boring you witless, it's just that I'm a crabbit auld
bugger who likes a good moan now and again. Right, I'm away home for dinner
and like other sad folk, I'll shout at the TV. Victor Meldrew lives!
