my name is cole kenneally. i'm a pharmacy technician at brigham and women's
hospital in boston.
I'd like to offer you a copy of my program Pharmacy Gabber for the mac.
Pharmacy Gabber is postcardware (costs nothing) and can be downloaded from
AOL or my www homepage now. There is an application version and a Hypercard
version - you are welcome to either or both. You may give copies to students
or technicians or use it as a training aid in your pharmacy, pharmacy dept,
To get Pharmacy Gabber from AOL, just go to the Macintosh software libraries
and use search phrase "pharmacy". To download it from my web page, go to
http://members.aol.com/ckk96/colek/pharmacygabber.html. i would also be glad
to email anyone a copy as well as upload it to any site where it would be
convenient for people who would find it useful to download it.
Pharmacy school is tough and expensive - I just made it easier and cheaper!
Dwindling resources and skyrocketing expenses is compromising the quality of
healthcare - I just made a difference!
Pharmacy Gabber an easy to use, interactive training aid that will help you
learn some basic information that you need to know to be productive and
proficient in Pharmacy.
Hosted by your instructor, Victoria, Pharmacy Gabber teaches two important
things. First it teaches generic-trade equivalents. Second, it teaches
pronunciation of pharmaceutical names.
Pharmacy Gabber is easy to use. Click on the hands to move forward or
backward through the pages. Click the generic name to hear it pronounced,
then try to find the matching trade name. If you select the right one,
Victoria will pronounce it for you. If you select the wrong one, you will
hear an annoying sound or something. Once you have selected the correct one,
simply go on to the next page by clicking the hands. Soon you'll know and
correctly pronounce all the generic and trade names you need to know to begin
your career in pharmacy! Good luck and have fun!!
Requirements: Pharmacy Gabber requires a mac with system 7 and at least 4
megs of ram available. Pharmacy Gabber also requires Plain Talk 1.4 -
specifically MacInTalk Pro 1.4. Plain Talk 1.4 is the voice synthesis program
developed for the Macintosh. Plain Talk can be downloaded as no charge
shareware from Apple at KEYWORD: applecomputer on America Online. It can also
be d/l'ed via Apple's www homepage. You can follow the links from my website.
[I have placed the files on the PharmMM FTP server at:
Binary transfer or
for http transfer.
The HC version relies on your having HyperCard available - the other is
stand alone if you have PlainTalk installed - db]

I do not have access to a Mac so therefore I can't give it a try. I am one
of those hard line Windows type people who hate Macs. But I will put your
links on my page.
BTW, I couldn't get to your homepage to d/l the program. This might be a
problem if people waht to go to your page.

Cole mentioned something about porting in one of my conversations - e-mail
with him. I don't know the time frame or what capability he has to do that.

I just tried
from a machine (a Mac ;-) using Netscape) in the same office and it
downloaded fine. I also tried from a UNIX machine but I had to use binary
transfer and ask for PGabber10.sit without the .hqx. That might help. I
think my server must sense a Mac (MacBinary) and do the .hqx'ing on the fly
??? If you are using a ftp client you could try looking at the folder
Anonymous/mm/ on host ftp.cpb.ouhsc.edu. The IP number is 188.8.131.52
but the name has been around for some time. The server was down for a few
minutes on Monday (around 4 pm CST) but has been running OK otherwise.
Hope that helps.

I think we can forgive you for hating Macs Ed, (he knows not what he does!
;-)), but I am working on a way for you to give my program a try. In fact,
since you have Windows, I would appreciate it if you did.
Since I have had so many people ask me for an IBM version, I've started an
HTML version. I could use some feedback if any of you guys have the time. I
created a new page which acts as a test version - you don't have to download
anything - all you have to do is view my page and test-click a few links.
Then let me know if it works with your platform/browser et.al.
