Warning: This post was published more than 9 years ago.
I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!
But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:
- My views might have changed in the 9 years since I wrote this post.
- This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
- Factual information might be outdated.
- Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.
Many thanks for your understanding.
I forgot to point this out last week: There was much coverage of the increased costs of calling home from hospital in the media at large, with much criticism of the provider of the systems, PatientLine. But as I said back in 2005, when this was last in the news, it’s not PatientLine who’s to blame – it’s Mad Pat.
