1) The cold room doesn't work- so all our cold stuff is still one building over and 4 floors down (anyone seeing a problem here?)
2) DI water is still being cleaned-we work with really small concentrations of metals, so DeIONized water is kinda key
3) No natural gas hook ups-biology=sterile things, hard to do without bunsen burners
Those are the major problems, besides not knowing where we stored anything and general other issues. I would however like to give a shout-out to Midwest Movers, who totally rocked. Didn't break anything, including the boxes full of crappy glassware which we were hoping to break, and are sooooo crazy efficient it took them 1.5 days to move everything (we were afraid our 3 days wouldn't be enough). Also, Steve and the connection guys, who made everything work magically and are still hooking things up for us. You guys rock!
P.S. If you're reading this and choosing a grad school, don't pick one where they're going to make you move the lab to a new building. Just a hint....
