Have a Mac? Tough luck on government grants

At least for a year. NIH has even quietly moved away from the electronic grant migration due to major grants being effected affected by all sorts of institutions. The grants.gov system is being built by Northrop Grumman in a $22 billion contract. Don’t ask me why someone that is usually building jet engines is building a grant system.
Apparently the hardest hit? Any sort of research institution that depend on government grants. They are still on track for implementing a Mac solution but at the current, there isn’t one in place.
Joy. Got to love releases of “beta” products.

    Do check your dictionary on the difference between “effect” and “affect” because you use them incorrectly. This is a very common mistake and I know you don’t want to be known as ‘common’ in any way.
