	If I had a spare processor & the time fair enough!

	Yeah, OK, but I would want to know exactly how those blocks got
from specimen reciept to embedding, & then I'd still want to test it - see
scenario #1.

	Don't get me wrong I like to try out new things, generally I work in
research labs so there are no problems with changing the processor to
something new for a week or 2.  But in the hospital situation its a whole
different ball game.  What you really want is the paraffin, the blocks, a
reasonable amount of documentation, & preferably the contact details of
people who already use it.
