That's interesting. Are the apps for the newfangled handheld PDA kind doodads that the UPS / FedEx and USPS folks all seem to carry around?

Pretty sure I answered above somewhere ... simple public accountant here "simple unfrozen accountant" in Kurak's language.

I work in the retail pharmacy market, so one of our devices is actually a delivery device (gives the delivery guy a list of prescriptions to deliever, directions to customers, and then records signatures, etc..) ... but mainly the applications are for increasing speed/efficiency of pharmacists/pharmacy techs who fill prescriptions... so computers w/ touch screens that sit on their counters.

Well I started life as a Tech Consultant but then realized I didnt want to spend the rest of my life in a cubicle, so I went back to school. I am finishing up my CJ degree in Undewater Crime Scene Investigation, I recently got my USCG captains license, and by spring I will be a dive instructor. I am trying to get hired by fish and wildlife to be a game warden back in Kentucky, but who knows what the future holds.

I am in Pharmaceutical sales for Johnson and Johnson. I really like it and I am looking to move up in the company.

Paul, who do you work for?

This is balanced against the need of the potential compound/ its originality, the ability to produce it in large quantities and most importantly its potential ability to help people - without hurting them. The kicker - while doing this we are looking into the future some 4-8 years which is how long it will take to test any result to see if it can go into humans (then another 2-5 yrs of efficacy testing in humans).
This could explain why I get weird looks on Monday when I walk in with grease & oil on my hands and have to admit I still could not figure out what was wrong with the Defender.

Emphasis on the "crack." Once you get your back cracked you become an addict.

Yeah people always joke that once you go to a chiropractor you have to go back forever, but truth is people decide to come back, because of how it makes them feel.

well I am obviously going to say yes, but I tell people to try it out if they want. Find someone you know that goes to one, and ask them what they think overall.
