    You forgot the disclaimer IANADr.

    BTW, he can always run around with an extension cord. Just fill the
    bathtub with water and jump in and that should take care of the problem.

    I's probably just a line fault, keep trying for a few days, I'm sure
    they'll have it fixed by the end of next week.

    Buy an AC adapter at Radio Shack. They have AC adapters to fit everything.

    Maybe he could buy some old transistors on Ebay?
    Then he could run the thing at reduced voltage.

    Do you even have an artificial heart?
    N: Ignore message
    Y: Consult doctor that installed it.

    yes, those programs exist, but it's slightly illegal, slightly as in, let
    the poor sap die. although, you could build a colour box and set up a
    laptop down at the nearest phone booth, you need the phone booth to make
    sure nobody finds out it was you, and the colour box to make the calls
    free. you might even want to get friends involved, give them a block of
    numbers to call, then wait for them to do the bulk of the dirty work.
    you'll have to move around to make sure the phone companies don't track
    you down, they can get rather annoyed at the use of colour boxes, even for
    a good cause.
    as an alternative, you could set up a non profit organisation with the
    direct goal of making sure this person gets his warning, but you'll have
    to do it quick.

    Methinks ranger be the prankster... anyone with a pacemaker, or more,
    knows the drill on checking battery, sending data via your home phone,
    etc. No one in that condition would be caught off-guard by such a
    call.

    While you're *basically* correct, you wouldn't believe some of the dumb
    things cardiac (among others) patients have done/asked! <g>
