Avoid the doctor: Diagnose swine flu on the Web

In an effort to cut down on the number of people running to their doctor or emergency room, panicked that they have the swine flu, Microsoft Corp. and Emory University have come up with an interactive Web site to help with a diagnosis.

Released Wednesday, the site doesn't require you to cough into your computer, but taking your temperature before going online will help answer some of the questions to determine how sick you are and if you should seek immediate medical attention.
