I've discovered that if one Cut & Paste the DOI of a document available on Springerlink in the Spingerlink search box, it will take you straight to the document. I hope this works similarly for other platforms. This has been a problem for me, because if I use my library's interface to online journals, I don't have to pay for the bandwidth.

Today I discovered that if I forget to switch off the chiller for a whole week, the water in it will not freeze into a solid block, there will still be some circulating liquid left! Fortunately I did not have the bypass open, so the chiller could absorb some heat from the room. Ironically, I made this discovery because I wanted to add antifreeze to the chiller water.
