From the Article: Mr Cawthorn said: "We have had very few complications and [the patients] are very pleased.
"It is now offered as a routine procedure as part of the treatment offered with the plastic surgeons here."

Being this is still the way it is after many years, have Microsoft just blinkered themselves to improving only that which the end users see, ignoring the problems on the “admin backend" that don’t effect efficiency. Yes this is mainly just a bit of a complaining session but it does beg some questions. For instance, who wrote all the group policy rules? Did they lack basic logic or proof reading skills? Was there a lack of anyone looking over their shoulder to slap them around the back of the head, point to some wording and say “what the hell is this?!”.
But when faced with the 20th setting which states something like “Turn off control panel access, Enable/Disable” I do wonder, will we ever be shot of this archaic lumbering durp?
another random user writes: The UK's major internet service providers have been asked to block three more file-sharing websites
The BPI (British Phonographic Industry), which acts on behalf of rights holders, wants ISPs to prevent access to Fenopy, H33t and Kickass Torrents.
The BPI alleges that the sites are illegally distributing music. The ISPs told the BBC they would comply with the new demand, but only if a court order is put in place.
It follows a separate court order in April which saw popular file-sharing site The Pirate Bay blocked in the UK.
The biggest ISP, BT, said it was also "currently considering" its options. The letter, which was not intended to go public, was sent to six ISPs last week, namely BT, Sky, Virgin Media, O2, EE and TalkTalk.
It is understood that the BPI is hoping all three sites will be blocked before Christmas — far more quickly than the process has taken previously.
