    23 & Me's DNA melody

    appearantly, 23 & me just recently rolled out a new 'lab' for its customers...one that turns your DNA into a unique melody

    anyone here have luck with it yet? I clicked on my to get it, and it says it takes around 24 hrs to do, that was around 90 hours ago

    maybe just slow due to initial flood?

    When I tried it a week or two ago it worked fine and almost instantaneously. Maybe demand is higher now?

    Hmmm...I checked just now, and it's working for me. Maybe they're still in the process of loading it into everyone's accounts? Not sure.

    Mine worked fine a week or so ago, I was even sending out requests on how to play me vs others at the same time.

    The suggestion was to have my usual Firefox open and open Chrome and play them simultaneously.

    I've not done that yet, but I've played them individually so far. Pretty fun, actually.

    We ask for better ancestry tools, and get this garbage. Thank you 23andme!

    Though not with the same strength (it's an oddly satisfying tool to "fiddle" with - pun intended ), I do agree.

    23andMe continue to offer quick-appeal "populist" items instead of new ancestry features.

    Relative Finder face-lift instead of adding new reference populations.

    "Neanderthal" calculator instead of updating Y-DNA and mtDNA in tow with ISOGG.

    A shinier-looking main page (per Beta screenshots) rather than shaking up their Ancestry Painting, which is basically a K=3 ADMIXTURE.

    What's next, "How Denisovan Is Your Left Toe?". ([Edit]: I'd actually like to know now...)

    Typical 23andme. Don't get me wrong they have some pretty nice tools and downloadable raw data. Basically 23andme said let us pick a cool, hip, very easy to implement sudo ancestry tool , so it looks like we are busy. Note I'm a software engineer and would be thrilled to have input on 23andme's ancestry decisions.

    this is, what I posted on molgen:

    "I once had to phone all day to an employee of our city magistrate and began to finally hum his telephone number. It reminded me of a possible Gamelan melody ( 2 2 1 2 3 6 5 3 ) so I made a complete new composition out of it ( "Bauunga haldung" ) and when we performed that piece, I invited that rather confused man, who did not understand that honour.

    So I was curious about the announcement of an own melody (who knows what to do with it), but to be true, there is nothing, I can do with it. It is neither fun nor serious, although I still would like to know the generating criteria."

    most tools are heading only pure distraction, not real information!
