Thneed Digest – Week 2017 – 04

Everyone got the new FPS updates right…  Ya FSD didn’t either so you’re not alone.  Looks like it will still be a few years off or maybe months.  No one knows.  After all we still get to watch the same power point presentations dated 2014 about all the results of the work we have not seen.

Having spoken with several contributors it was brought to my attention that none of us recall from the annual meeting any hint of training.

Finally the latest is the announcement for a biometrician position and grad student scholarship.
