Re: Has Wireless internet connection got magnetic fields

Thanks for you replies everyone. You are all absolutly right. It is a bit disapointing that this is not the cause of my ICD going off. I could then have had an excuse for not doing my annual accounts for the tax man. I phoned the hospital this morning as the thing went off while I was asleep and obv...

Has Wireless internet connection got magnetic fields

Re: Hazel Nut allergy?? You don't want to do THAT
