One finger done

The implant removal was pretty intense, but Tom was very professional and did a wonderful job for me. I've taken lots of closeups of the removal and have some additional commentary on neodymium, the way it was coated, how we could make these work better, and so on. Anyway, I'll put together a full article that'll probably go up on Friday or Saturday.

Christ or Finger?

I'll say this with more certainty in a week, but the four single magnets are probably all gone… However, I just found out today that one of the clinical uses of neodymium is for extending the lives of lab rats. The toxicity information that's out there is almost all for inhalation, which is very different, and I'm being told that the little information there is on how it behaves in an implant is leaning toward “don't worry it”…

That said, I sure feel less stressed without a couple big black patches on my fingertip and won't replace them until the design problems are corrected! Anyway, I've got to go get my recording gear ready for the screening tonight so I'm off now, and I won't be able to update ModBlog tonight, sorry.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
