    Thanks for the tip off. I've just placed my order. I was supposedly on the waiting list but never heard from them to say they were available

    WOWEEEE! :p:p:p I had checked earlier this evening without any joy, so many thanks for the heads up.

    I hope I'll be able to fund mine in part by cutting down on the test strips I currently have to buy.

    Me neither.... :wideyed:

    Folks, I really hope you have a good experience. It transformed me from a fairly uncontrolled to controlled diabetic 8.9 -> 6. Just watch out for the doorframes!

    Nearly ripped my last sensor off on a doorframe with 2 days still to go.

    OWWW!!!

    The valiant little thing kept on working though. Well chuffed.
