What version of Xoran i-Cat

I am posting this because I just spoke with Don Croall and he informed me that he has version 3.1.62 of Xoran. I presently am using 2.0.21. Anyone out there using 3.1.62? I am looking to use an external hard drive to store my patients scans and he told me that his version makes it easier to move information more efficiently.

Wireless Digital Camera

Every once in a while something amazingly wonderful (technology wise) comes around that is so cool you have to tell someone about it. This little wireless memory card is one of those things. It's called "Eye-Fi" and you need to check it out at It's a 2GB SD memory card for your digital camera that connects through your wireless network to your computer, automatically downloading your photos into a specific folder that you select. No more connecting the camera with cables, no more pulling out the memory card and carrying it to the computer, no more accidentally deleting photos that haven't been saved or moved yet. It is WAY COOL!

The "Eye-Fi" card is available for around $100 from or Check it out.

But... what if (like me) your camera doesn't use a SD memory card...NO PROBLEM! Go to

and pick up a SD/Compact Flash adapter for around $15. Slip the SD card into the adapter, slip the adapter into your camera, and you're ready to shoot wirelessly.

This is so cool that I bought one for my lab, one for my home, AND one for my daughter (so that it will be easier for her to send me photos of my cute grandchildren.)

Check it out. See if it might make your lab run smoother.
