Re: [IPk] Danielle's site change



well done Babs, or rather Danielle! All sets can of course be inserted
manually, just make sure the small one goes in vertically into the skin, and
see that it actually punctures the skin before sticking it down, as if it's
short it could bend the skin without actually pushing through it, if you
know what I mean.
