Hi Geoff,

Just read your mail on IVC. Could not give an earlier response cos I was
away, actually in Australia! I was invited to give a keynote address at
the Health Informatics Conference (HIC '94) at the Gold Coast. I spoke
on "Connecting People with Biomedical Information" and briefly touched on
the CUSM tests that both of us had done with each other. That generated
a lot of enthusiasm and there were at least two dozen people wanting to
know where to get the CUSM software at the end of my talk!

Yes, we did try looking at the use of IVC with CUSM on the PC but could
not get it to work. I followed that up by contacting its developer who
told me that IVC had problems with Winsock. I am still trying to
hunt down the email response from the developer from my email archives
and will post it as soon as I find it (give me a break, this is my first
day at work since returning from Australia).

Cheers,

KC
