It has happened again, no idea how and why, but still I haven’t updated the Blog now for a while. Many things have happened actually, though that shouldn’t be a reason not to write anything here, but – on the contrary – rather should be a reason to update the page. Hence, I do not know why I haven’t managed to keep the News and or the content updated. I’ll try again to improve it and keep the page a bit more alive.
I started with updating the Photo folders, actually, you do not see any differences right now, but I started to move the pictures from Flickr away and host them now here on this webspace, as flickr only allows 1000 free pictures and I reached already around 700. In that sense, it was better to use the own webspace, instead of going Pro with flickr.
But during tat transition, I’ll also update the albums and add the latest pictures to the webpage, this will be one of the major improvements in close future.
This morning something strange happened on my way to the office – I noticed a bright, shiny, yellowish thing on the sky! It was the first time this winter, that the sun was up before I arrived at the office. Finally it seems that the winter is going to be over ‘soon’.
During the last weeks I updated a couple of my R-packages. The main work went into the GenomicTools package, though it required also adjustments to the two packages GenomicTools.fileHandler and hoardeR.
The changes are mainly in user-friendliness and bugfixing to catch special cases of data inputs. If someone uses the packages and finds any other bugs or has suggestions for improvements, please drop me an email, or contact me via the corresponding GitHub project page of the packages.
This night we had an incredible full moon, no need for lights or anything else!
Okay, we do not have yet a lot of snow, but still, the first white coverage has arrived here! It even seems, that there is some snow-work waiting in the yard.
