Competition Time - Win a Raspberry Pi with ChEMBL - chempi
Here's a free to enter competition for a brand new, fully working raspberry pi running the brand new chempi implementation. It includes everything you need to get started at home with ChEMBL - a sort of in silico Breaking Bad maybe (hopefully not, thinking about it). It includes everything you need, with the exception of a power supply and ethernet cable.
We have run out of our creative juices, and cannot think of a suitable poem to mark the release of chempi - so the competition is for you to finish a limerick for us, starting with the line.
There once was a hacker with chempi....
Entries must be posted in the comments section. Obscene or defamatory entries will be removed (all comments are moderated, so it may take a few hours for you entry to appear, so do not repost twenty times!). We haven't really decided how to pronounce chempi (with a hard 'k' start or a soft 'sh' start, just as with ChEMBL, both are used in the wild; and also does it rhyme with scampi, or the irrational number pi?). All entries will be assumed to be made under CC-BY licensing. The competition will be open until noon GMT on Sunday 10th November 2013.
Entires will be judged for compliance to a standard limerick format, outrageous rhymes with chempi, gratuitous chemistry references, and finally humour.
The judges decision (i.e. mine) is final. The winning entry will be published on the ChEMBL-og.
PS Before I get asked, the competition is not open to members of the ChEMBL group, or extended family members of the ChEMBL group.
