Possibly the least informative fax ever

Received recently. With no cover sheet.

Pity I don't have a barcode scanner handy.

I have a scanner right over here but the image is too low-res for the scanner to read.

pjwbiwbr - That's what it says.

Or that may just be the word verification word. I'm not sure.

And someone somewhere who has a fax number one digit off yours is yelling down the phone saying, "Where are my bar codes?!?"

wyldwoods - thanks for the thought, anyway ;)

I suspect they're just numbers that wouldn't be meaningful, but who knows?

They're the secret code for that giant "laser" in orbit around Earth, and as I too have a scanner, I can now TAKE OVER THE WORLD!!!

the lefthandside (83456109) googles up as "ECGB gene info DLL3" according some .jp site to do with fruit flies or a chinese telephone number in the 591 area code or an auction for a shotgun at

Sorry I can't be any more help than that.

Well, that is curious... not a gene I work on though.

It also links to a cDNA (BC063012) corresponding to a gene called CRISPLD2, which also seems rather irrelevant.

Ah well.

I wonder if they put the paper in the right way round? or is that too obvious??
