Victor Chernov: A goodbye and thank you message

July 25, 2012 in Testimonials

Hello guys

For the last two years I’ve been a post-doctoral fellow with Thomson’s group and a SciNet user. Now, when my fellowship has came to an end (don’t close my account just yet – I need to finish some things), I wanted to say goodbye. I also wanted to say that I’ve seen a lot of computer system admins and mangers, from both sides. I have to say that you guys are the best of all these. Really, until I started using SciNet, I have never realized that the computer people can be responsive, professional and nice – in the best case scenario I thought I needed to pick two out of three. I was wrong, and I can hardly think of any way that SciNet staff can be better. You were nice, responded fast and to the point, and didn’t show your annoyance with users that clearly haven’t read Wiki (which you maintained great). The courses that you offered were great and even the upgrades actually made life easier.

So, thank you for your work, and if you want to forward it to the people that are responsible for the funding – feel free. People that are responsible for the funding – SciNet staff does a wonderful job. Keep that in mind.

All the best
