    IIRC his marriage broke up, so he sold his pharmacy and went to Australia. Occasionally pops up on the web, but I haven't seen him for a while. I don't look at Scottish footbal forums though; might be there.

      Getting rid of FAX machines in favour of secure email is great but unfortunately I predict a large number of pictures of prescriptions being taken on peoples personal phones and emailed via gmail, hotmail or worse still whatsapp. At least with a fax there's an original at one end and a copy at the other. Email creates extra copies on the way. There's the original, a picture on the phone, a backup of the picture on Google Drive or similar, a copy in the email, a copy on the email server, a copy on each server between the sender and recipient, a copy in the received email and then whereever the recipient keeps the image on their PC. You can't accidentally "send to all" with a fax machine.
