    Google's recipe search is still a work in progess

  • Of course, an even better solution is to capture all information about a particular run of the model (including subsequent commentary on the results) as meta-data in the configuration file, so that no wiki pages are needed: lab notebook pages are just user-friendly views of the configuration file.
