Sorry this isn't a technical post. :) I will continue to make this blog about the "Zen" of Computers, particularly .NET and Web Services...watch for a new look for the site very soon...

That being said, just when I start to feel lousy about being hooked up to an $g(insulin pump) 24 hours a day, I see this picture of the first insulin pump from 1978.  Guess I have little to complain about!

Actually i think that pump is from 1963. I had one of the first truly portable pumps in 1978, and it was only about twice the size of current pumps.
