You know you've been spending too much time on the flow when:

#3. You stare with envy at your DJ's audio equalizer board and think how sweet if you
could control all 15+ Aria parameters with that interface.

 You know you've been spending too much time on the flow when:

1) you dream all night about a new instrument that doesn't exist2) you dream in rhyme to
a tune about what you do, thus composing your new lab theme song.Me, I dreamt all night
about a new flow cytometer that married the open configuration of a MoFlow to the
capability of an ImageStream.  I also had expanded staff to run it.  I'll take the staff
with my old FACScan!!



And the song?

To the tune of "Home on the Range"

Oh give me a flow,Where all the cells glow;(And one has to work in the dark).I see cells
fluoresce,And never coalesce.In this way does one make one’s mark.

Refrain:Flow, flow all the day!No clogs to get in my way.FITC and PEIs what I shall
see.Science triumphant alway'.

If ISAC needs a theme song, we can talk....
