Assembling quotes for grants is kind of like making up a big list of toys you want for Christmas. You get all excited whilst making the list, asking for new bikes, Legos, GI Joe or Modern Warfare 13 and then come Christmas day you find that all you’ve gotten is a new pair of socks and you realize making the list got you all excited for nothing, because you were probably going to get the socks no matter what.

Well, this year I think I’d be happy with socks, because anything we get through grants is going to be more than we would have gotten. Not even socks for us this year I’m afraid. And that’s why I’m putting together quotes for technology I will probably never see.
