Store Security

I walked into a store that I frequent the other day and set off alarms as I walked in and again on the way out. Now the store has had this type of security for some time and it hasn't been an issue before. So... I walked in again, alarms - and out again and... alarms! Out of curiosity, I spoke to one of the store managers and he told me that they had installed new security pylons and would check with the security company that did the install to make sure that the settings were not harmful a...

TMAN

I too have been trying to access the comments from different avenues. No luck. One thing though, you stsated that it is post the number of comments inaccurately,I don't beleive that is so. It is adding up the posts correctly ,it is just not allowing the viewing of those posts. IO trieed it on one and counted to see if the amount of the posts would change and it did. Something happened with the processing of the post and when it is going through the "spam" part possible thtat it is storing info....

I posted a comment

I posted a comment on "Active Topic" message and the number of comments went from 3 to 4 ---but my comment didn't show up. Other people private messaged me and said the same thing was happening to them on that topic. (I originally posted that topic).
It's no big deal and maybe it's working now.

Comments

Well, I've tested posting comments from a number of different computers, operating systems, and so forth. They are going up without any difficulty. It seems that there is a bug in the code somewhere that is inaccurately representing the number of comments. I'm going to spend some time this evening and track that particular bug down and stamp on it. Firmly.

Stomach Sleeping

OK. I've seen some posts back in the day about trouble sleeping and positions you sleep in with your pm. Pre-pm I always was a side sleeper (on my right side). Since having my pm implanted, I sleep SO differently! Differently meaning good and bad and just plain different than before. I'm all over the place! At times one position is comfortable then the next minute it's not.

Anyways...I want to sleep on my stomach from time to time (I used to do this pre-pm) but avoid doing so...

Active topics??

How do we find out if there are new replies to topics from recent postings? Most forums have an "active topics" list. Am I missing something here? ( it wouldn't be the first time). LOL

Re: Frequency of Pacing (Latgre's post)

Hi there,

I, too, have a pacemaker fitted for VVS! It's been about 5 and a bit months now and it's still settling in to its new home... The first month or so, the RDR feature was going off all the time - even after I sneezed!

At my last PM check, I had a fabulous technician who went through all the readouts with me. Apparently, mine is (on average) doing the work for my heart for 35 mins a day... Now I know this isn't much at all - compared to other people here who are 100...

Needless to say I was shocked! Anyay this type of procedure is fairly simple, but it does have I think the same qualites as an MRI! Help did anyone have this done with there implant??

Surgery with a Pacemaker

Hi - My toddler has a pacemaker for CHB. I am pretty sure she is going to need eye surgery to correct her intermitant exotropia. While I am not at all nervous about her having a pacemaker, and I am not concerned about the eye surgery -- the combination of the two is flipping me out. I am extremely upset. Has anyone had a surgery and can you tell me if special precautions are taken b/c you have a pacemaker?

Thanks.

REMEMBER THIS DAY

We stand underneath the same winds and skies that our God has given unto the first man. The very waters that man has been given is still here today. The sun that God has commanded to be will not fail to give us it's shining light. The seasons that never fall out of order continue to show us that God's word is still being obeyed. The stars will stand in their places to guide us in the night. What would we do if God's word were not real. How could we control the wind? How could we chang...

DR. never mentioned medication

I am awaiting a pacemaker. While waiting, I read on this site that there are medications, also. My Dr. never even mentioned that there was any at all. Is it common to at least TRY medications before having the surgery for implant of the pacemaker? Should I get another Dr's. opinion first? My Dr. is unavailable for a month, so I can not ask him why he never mentioned medication. Or, is the medication not generally used except for special cases?

A pacemaker completely solved my problem. In fact, it was implanted just 7 weeks ago and I ran a race today, placed first in my age group.
