Ports

port

This is an implated access device which allows professional carers to draw blood and make intravenous (or intra-arterial) injections into a patient in an easier way without having to locate and insert a canulla into a new vessel. Some ports are connected for intrathecal, intraperitoneal or intracavitary injections. These devices are expensive and are not free of problems, they should not be implated without good indications. Normally implantation is performed by a surgeon with experience in this technique, in a operational theatre under local anaesthetic.

Online study group for botany/horticulture students

I didn't think of that. Blocked ports. A firewall program like Zone Alarm could cause trouble. I got rid of it once I started using a router. But if you are using a firewall, you may have to add permissions for new sw.

Online study group for botany/horticulture students

Perhaps some ports are block...umm you can just open an account and use meebo(interfaces with AIM). No installation needed. Also apparently gmail(gtalk) has the same interfacing function now too.
