I've used electrical tape for some time now.  It's stretchy,
inexpensive, and comes in a variety of colors so I've ended up
"color-coding" plates

That is a web archive of a bionet news group post 13 years ago.

I'm not sure if news group servers will carry news group posts that are 
that old but if they do it is impossible to alter such a news group 
post. The information will therefore always be out there. It is also 
archived on Google groups and as such it can never be erased.

Sending the message above to this public newsgroup may counteract the 
previous post but you really need to talk to the web archivers. Maybe an

e-mail to archive from would help?

I love deadlines. I especially like the whooshing noise they make as
they go flying by.

How about modifying the pump so the syringe is rotating while it is
pumping? You
will need a very smooth plunger so the body can rotate around it (try
both glass
and plastic syringes) and a small motor (like 9V) turning a rubber wheel
that is
pressed against the syringe body.

Dear Experts,

just have bought sealing tape for petri dishes at 35 euros per 33m
roll. After unpacking, I realized that someone must earn a fortune by
buying some cheap stuff in bulk and removing the label on the
cardboard roll to prevent finding the real source.

Any idea what I might try next time?

Thanks for your help!
