Dear Kerry Lee,
my lab uses 3M Micropore surgical tape (#1530-0) which is 12.5 mm wide. 3M
also makes Micropore 25 mm wide. Any hospital supplier should carry it.
I notice that people at times have difficulties with their E-mail
system. Programmers at the University of Washington have developed a very
user friendly E-mail handling program called "Pine". I understand that
Pine is available for free to the scientific community. One of the
advantages of Pine is that, when answering a posted message, it is
impossible to reply to the whole network by mistake. I do not know
whether Pine could solve Kerry Lee's problem, but it is a nice program
for all those who, like me, get lost in Unix world. For information about Pine
contact help at cac.washington.edu
