The Economist agrees about the bailout.
Getting down to the wire on our NIH grant application, I just casually attempted to log in with my usual credentials into Grants.gov. Using Internet Explorer…the latest version, (I guess) it didn’t work. I downloaded a fresh copy of FireFox, and was in. It also worked on Safari. So there is something odd going on with IE. I’m now thinking the ideal grant application machine is a Windows XP machine with dual monitors, so you can keep the instructions open at the same time you are filling out the forms. You also need a copy of Adobe Acrobat…the full application to slice and dice .PDF files.
