I have my medic alert necklace I wear whenever I am out of the house. It has web access to all of my health information, including my contact numbers. Also have a key fob that is USB storage with all the info, plug it into any computer and it brings up my health info.

How can I get one of those key fobs? Between heart, diabetes, allergies to a lot of meds, it sounds like just what I need. I already have a blank Flash, should I use that? It has a ring for my key ring. Thank you so much for the idea. I have been toying for years about wearing a braclet or neclace, but with my skin condition it would only aggravate it. And one for you Miss Nightingale!

Oh well. Thanks for asking.

You can get them here: Medical History Bracelet » CARE Medical History Keychain with 2.0 e-Manager Software

They are simple to keep updated.

I'm waiting to hear back if the USB key is in French and English. In Quebec, I would usually get Francophone first responders who may speak English, but may not read it. Spanish is fairly useless here.

I update mine after each Doctor's appointment and it has all my labs in it, too. It's right on my laptop, easy to access. I keep Shrek's up to date, too. All of my POA info and emergency contacts are in there. Med list, insurance info... It's got everything!

I got my notice of assessment for my sales tax reports for the 3rd quarter of 2012 today. They have assessed a penalty and interest.

So, tomorrow I have to phone the MRQ (Ministère du Revenu du Québec). I had to rummage, but I found my receipt. The sales tax reports were due on 2012-10-31 and that's the date on my receipts. Yes, two receipts - one for the report and one for the cash I paid. And the one for the cash I paid, says what it is for. I hate having to waste my time calling the government. It often takes forever to get someone who can handle the problem. Grrr

My vent is about MagicJack.

I tried last year to use the "no computer necessary" service. It turned out that it was supposed to be hooked up to my modem, so it didn't need a computer necessarily, but why would I have a modem without the computer.

My modem did not have a port that would fit, nor could I find any adaptor. I could still hook it up through the computer, but every time I closed my laptop, I had no phone service.

I gave it up as a bad purchase, but have been waiting for the renewal request to prevent them from charging me for another year's service.

Instead of requesting, my renewal, I just received an email saying they were going to charge my account if I didn't reply within one hour.

The email was posted at 2AM! I just happened to be up and checking in at 3:50, so sent them a reply that I wasn't going to renew and added a note about the 2AM email being an unethical way of doing business.

The charge isn't supposed to go through until 12/2/12, so I'll be checking to see if they attempt it.

GRRRrrr!

I think you need an external modem or router for it to work without a computer, though they say you can plug the MagicJack into the wall phone plug.

Didn't they have a 30 day free trial?

Now that just stinks. It's no way to make themselves look like a reputable company and I agree that it is unethical.
