Talking Ion Torrent in Cambridge!

It's an exciting day in Cambridge, UK at the EASIH where we're having our Ion Torrent PGM installed! This was one of the honorary prizes awarded to Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
Test run tomorrow and training starts Monday. Will post on how it all goes . .

As you say, exciting!

We are having ours installed next Thursday! (Birmingham)

Shall we start up a UK users list to exchange notes?

Great to have you both on board! I look forward to hearing of your many successes.

I just wanted to ensure you knew about the Ion Community, which weve recently launched as a resource for support, collaboration, and all things PGM. Id like to invite both of your groups to participate and help us build this community into something truly valuable for all PGM users. I certainly appreciate the utility of a user email list but would encourage you to check out the site and leverage the expertise of the entire global PGM user base, support teams, and other interested parties. I hope to see you there!

Full disclosure: I love SEQanswers just as much as the next guy (thanks, Eric!). Its a tremendous resource for the NGS community!

Best regards,
Jason

Hi Jason!

I did register on the Ion Community board, and indeed posted a few questions. But not much seems to be much happening. In fact, I just logged-in and my 2 questions have disappeared and I can't see any topics at all. Not sure what's happening there... perhaps you can look into it.

Cheers

Nick

Thanks for the feedback, Nick. The missing questions may have just been caught up in the initial site rollout / reorg but things are all up and running now!

Cheers,
Jason

Thanks for the compliment Jason!

Will be interesting to see if the Ion community will be unbiased and unedited/censored when/if things go awry for a customer...I'll definitely register and keep an eye on things there as well!

Jason - OK, will keep a look out. Perhaps post a few discussion topics to get the community started?

I have to say that I think the forum/groupware software you guys are using is a bit overkill. There are too many options, and everything leads to a blank page. You might want to consider simplifying it a bit.

I prefer a more basic BB like Seqanswers, or perhaps a Q&A style site.
