I seem to recall that canine specimen's age played a great role in
successful recovery. Anyway, 21CM is doing incredible work -- and we
are likely to expect even more dramatic results if the research will
go to full time mode. Yay for 21CM!

Btw, the recent week has been pretty stormy again on CryoNet. Very
good points have been made by CP/MD, I'd only wish the entire debate
could have occured in a more constructive atmosphere. (Complacency
in face of grave deficiencies would have been worse, though).
