Firefly shot me 51 days into the future

I feel pretty good about my project this weekend. I used the University of Nebraska Firefly Cluster for a real project for the first time, completing 51.6 DAYS worth of data crunching while I slept between 3am and 9:30am this morning. The code I ran is my fork + branch of a bunch of Perl from Harvard against the latest human genome from UCSC. Masochists can read all the gory details (username: guest password: guest) and suggest improvements.

Computers are pretty cool sometimes. :)
