Thanks Ed for all your newsletters and updates.

I have one comment about the outstanding issue on 

xace/tace hang when trying to get write access
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

which I think is primarily a Sanger Centre problem.  As Ed says, this
is due to NFS problems.  The correct way to avoid this problem is to
ALWAYS run acedb from the machine that directly mounts the disk with
the database on.  This not only deals with NFS problems, but will also
improve performance substantially.  I'm going to copy copy Kate Rice
here who oversees all the humgen informatics operations, because this
may require changing some LSF behaviour for the humgen cluster.  We
have talked about this before....
