Chris, so, so sorry to be sarccy and have the toasting fork
out for flaming, but HELLO?????

Have a read at this article in the Register

"The UK's National Health Service Information Authority has awarded a
single tender for the specification of national electronic health record
system to Microsoft, which does seem to suggest that
a certain company will do well out of the ensuing project. The decision
was taken at the NHSIA management board meeting on 7 February, and will
initially be worth £250,000."

I was going to flag it to the list at the time,
but I'm trying to shake off my image as a sourpuss :-)
I'm also trying to stop running off at the mouth on 
publicly-archived email lists too.
