COVID-19 NH: Testing STILL NOT Available To All In N.H.; Even If You Are In Hospital!

by Anura Guruge

We are over 2-months into THE pandemic & TESTING in New Hampshire is FAR from available to all.

Just to a very limited SUBSET.

So here is the kicker.

I heard from somebody who is IN HOSPITAL — at New Hampshire’s FAMED ‘Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center‘ (DHMC) in Lebanon. A research & teaching hospital no less. They don’t have enough tests. You have to meet the age or employment criteria or have symptoms. IF not, you can’t have it. That is STUPID. That is crazy.

I heard that New York is now doing a MILLION tests a week.

Well, a million tests would just about cover ALL of New Hampshire.

But, we don’t have enough tests!

And NOBODY is mentioning this.

I meet the over-60 criteria. So, I can get one.

I don’t want one. Don’t see the point. Right now, I have no symptoms.

They can tell me I am negative & I could be positive 24-hours later. I could have caught it by going for the test.

Would be SLIGHTLY more interested in the antibody test. But, even that, right now, would be a waste. I really haven’t had any symptoms. So, very UNLIKELY I had it without I realizing it. Given my age & poor heath, I would have KNOWN it even if I had a touch. So, I am not going to deprive a more worthy person from getting a test.

But, thought YOU should know.

GoDaddy e-mail (SecureServer) — Appears We Are Using Software Under Test.

by Anura Guruge


GoDaddy e-mail, late this afternoon, was even MORE temperamental
than usual.

Did YOU notice that?

I then happened to glance at the URL because I tried to REFRESH the tab.

BINGO!

Saw the word ‘beta’.

In the computer/software industry that indicates something
UNDER CUSTOMER TESTING.

See this official definition of ‘beta software‘.

So we are using, right now, ‘Beta’ software
— i.e., software that is still being TESTED.

That explains everything.

Fuji’s X-Pro2 Firmware 1.0 Explanation Raises Questions As To Testing & Quality Assurance.

Click to ENLARGE and read here. Start of Fuji’s explanation as to why Firmware Update 1.0 was released. Use link below to access original from Fuji.

Click here to access original from Fuji X-Pro2 Support.


That Fuji was forced to release a Firmware Update within 22 days of the much vaunted X-Pro2’s General Availability has to indicate that the Menu Setting Reset problem was real. The explanation (above) that comes with the 1.0 update confirms that.

This is disturbing and I speak of one who has been involved with software for 48 years! How could X-Pro2 testers, QA folks and beta-testers (in the field) NOT have seen this. Cameras would have to have been turned off — if nothing else to replace batteries. So people MUST have experienced this problem before the camera started to ship.

Would appear that Fuji OPTED to ship initial units KNOWING that there was this RESET problem. Would not be the first company to have knowingly shipped faulty products. But worrying. What can we expect with the Fuji X-T2 that is supposed to be available around August 2016.

What Is Happening To & At Huggins Hospital, Wolfeboro, NH?

Mamogram 20130002

Mamogram 20130001


Notice anything strange
about this flyer we got from Huggins Hospital
on Saturday?

It was actually very timely. Deanna had had a physical at Dartmouth-Hitchcock (Concord) on Thursday and had been told to get a mammogram. She was thinking about getting it done at Concord Hospital when this flyer came.

I have never forgiven Huggins Hospital for the grief it caused me through its FALSE PSA reporting.

But, Huggins is our nearest hospital and we use it when we have to.

Something is not right at Huggins — of late.

We were there, in the Emergency Room (ER), a few weeks ago, crack-of-dawn, i.e., 8:30 am, on a Monday. Over the weekend Teischan managed to fall off a stationary skateboard and hurt her foot. Though it was slightly swollen I was sure that there were no broken bones. That is one of the many advantages of having played rugby, in school, in Britain, in the early 1970s. IF you yourself didn’t break anything, you were still likely to see at least one broken bone injury a game. So you get fairly expert at spotting broken bones. I do have an enviable diagnostic record in this respect. But, despite my assurances Deanna was not convinced. So we took Teischan to Huggins ER on Monday.

The ER was deserted. No patients. Just one rather bemused volunteer and two frumpy receptionists pretending to be busy. Though we were the only ones there it took the receptionists 20 minutes to get around to calling us.

Yes, we had to get an X-ray. So we accompanied Teischan, through multiple automatic doors, to the X-ray room (to call it a department would be a joke). [I was right. Just a strain. Ace bandage, which I had already done.]

The hospital was deserted. Empty. I have seen more activity in Arizona ghosts towns than at Huggins, of late.

Eerily quiet. So there is now this pervasive air of morbidness though the place is SPOTLESSLY clean — probably because they have so few patients.

Yes, we all know that Huggins stopped delivering babies years ago. I can understand that.

But, I heard recently that Huggins no longer has full-time cardiologists! How is that possible?

Wolfeboro, NH, the Oldest Summer Resort in the U.S., outside of Florida, is the Old People’s Capital of the U.S.

And we are not talking just, hoi polloi old folks. We are talking Mittens Romney RICH, very rich old folks with Titanium health policies.

What gives.

The new building looks a million dollars — and I know it costs much, much more.

But, the place is empty.

And then this flyer. [I know. You thought I forgot.]

So did you spot the incongruity?

There is NO PHONE NUMBER.

Just the Web URL.

Yes, it tells you to call your primary care provider to schedule an appointment, BUT is Huggins that ashamed of itself, and I can understand if they were, after how they screwed up my PSA, that they are too embarrassed to give out their phone number?

There phone number is, in case you want it:
603-569-7500.
