Maybe we need 'smartsticks'. our local computer club uses USB sticks 
for monthly sharing/updating of freeware instead of disks. I think 
they bought a bunch of $10 ones and then onsold to the members who 
wanted to participate. They bring in their sticks and update each 
month. Not sure how that translates to the Ehealth info, but memory 
is memory as they say. The issue is what safeguard access.

Our truest response to the irrationality of the world is to paint or 
sing or write, for only in such response do we find truth.
