Hope it wasn't bye-bye pass surgery.

Right but I wanted to remain within the contraints of the OP's problem
statement.

Actually I'm not looking. I have an Omron M3 recommended by my new
"toubib" (toubib or not toubib) who recommended it because I was getting
high, in-office readings (turned out to be white coat hypertension--this
doctor makes me nervous).

No computer connectivity for this M3 model. 

But apparently there are a couple of Omrom models with PC connectivity
which work with the open-source software to which I gave the link.

Thanks for the heads up and hope your health is stable and good.
