Oh, I think you're going to miss having your brain scrapped through your 
nose with a wooden QTip.

I wasn't aware of the Binax, but as is the "rule" with open source, is 
it supported as legit by those who require tests?

Honestly, when it comes to healthcare, it seems the more it's regulated 
for privacy, the less privacy there is.

I mean:


I also wrote a blog post related for $work, but am not posting any $work 
URLs here. Hit me offlist if you want a good example of how crappy the 
picture is.

The punch line is this: you need *my* DoB to get someone a gift 
certificate for a facial, but it's okay since that Windows computer on 
your desk is "secure" and you're regulated by HIPAA?
