Not really -- same questions. We're still discussing the toxicity
of EtBr (for one thing) :-)

That's Paul Hengen -- and yes, I think that is a lovely idea. Not only
did Paul's FAQ reduce repetitive posts, but it also contained lots of
useful information -- such as a simple protocol to make competent cells.
Anyone know where is Paul these days? He was a postdoc with Tom Schneider,
but I don't think he is there any more.
P.S. In the late '80s, to "popularize" BIOSCI, Dave Kristoferson used
to give presentations and seminars at various institutions about bio.net
and the newsgroups -- guess that doesn't happen anymore ....
