$5.00 generic alternative to the Epi-Pen

Victory is mine! My quest for an emergency dose of epinephrine to have on hand that does not cost an arm and a leg (or support the ridiculous salary of a pharmaceutical CEO) was a success. I asked my physician to prescribe a "generic epinephrine auto-injector". It took CVS two tries to get what I wanted. They first filled the script with an Epi-pen to the tune of $616. We have a high dexuctable plan that does not kick in at that level and we have been healthy and injury free this year. This is full price. Even after the coupon that is now available from the manufacturer, I would be out a minimum of $300 for something that costs less to make than a Big Mac. I refused the purchase and explained that I specifcally requested the generic. They told me there was no such thing. After a brisk conversation and some time spent hunched over thier computer, the pharmacy staff told me they were sorry and that they had found it in their system but did not have any on hand. They would have it for me in a few days. Today I picked it up. My new friend behind the counter recognized me and said that they had ordered extras to have on hand for other customers after seeing that there was an option. My new script fell into the generic price catagory which, with the coverage we have, ran me a whopping $5. Not bad for a days work.

Software updates often leave users of older hardware in the cold. Jason Scott has worked hard to remedy this, and thanks to his efforts, you can now run ProDOS 2.4 on mainline-series Apple ]['s, not just the IIgs.

This fixes most of the remaining compatibility issues across the series, and should be a welcome relief for those who have been put off by the IIgs' rather high cost ($999, or about $2,150 in current dollars) or otherwise unable to upgrade.

However, even with the system upgrade, you'll still need a IIgs to support the 320x200 and 640x200 graphics modes. Them's the hardware constraints...

// No possible subsidy was left untapped. After the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, Mr. Trump lined up a $150,000 grant for one of his buildings near ground zero, taking advantage of a program to help small businesses in the area recover, even though he had acknowledged on the day of the attacks that his building was undamaged. //
Mr. Trump has relied on the government and taxpayers to benefit the 15 buildings at the core of his Manhattan real estate developments.
