I've moved to sdf, a very cool public access unix system. The new url is http://edoneel.chaosnet.org
From now on this blog will focus on web services. I'll try to document my experience with getting web services to run in Squeak with a view to making it understandable to anyone, regardless of the computer language used
Reference information will appear on the WebServices link in the upper left corner but the essays will first appear below.

BioBrew is an open source Linux cluster distribution based on the NPACI Rocks (www.rocksclusters.org) cluster distribution and enhanced for bioinformaticists and life scientists. While BioBrew looks, feels, and operates like ordinary Red Hat Linux, it includes popular open source clustering and bioinformatics software e.g. the NCBI toolkit, BLAST, mpiBLAST, HMMER, ClustalW, GROMACS, PHYLIP, WISE, FASTA, and EMBOSS.
