@sulkaharo didn't know they could accurately distinguish subtypes now
ah, that paper is not what I epxected
I saw something outlining up to 20 types somewhere

Ah yes, they can't. And the number of subtypes keeps changing.

You're dashing my hopes for a cure that doesn't leave me with my conditioned fear of doorknobs.

Doorknobs is a curse word around these parts

Forget doorknobs, door frames are just as bad for sites.

Doorknobs should be made of copper as they used to in many houses and in all hospitals. Kills bacteria in minutes and prevents spreading disease.

my worst doorknob experience: I was walking back from the kitchen, warmed leftover tacos on a plate in one hand, drink in the other. I walk into the bedroom, tubing catches on doorknob, tacos and water go all over the floor. To make things worse: I had no other food in the house :'(

Yeah, so on the project I am working on, they use some weird notation, for the distributions involving random walks (mathematical function). I know what to do with it, but I still have to figure out if I am doing it 100% correctly. Fortunately I think I it will only require static testing of calculated values to figure out whether I am correct on this part. Of course for the actual AP tests, I intend on making a "virtual patient" of myself to test it out dynamically, for safety reasons.
Actually I have a flowchart of how I am going to implement my project

OMG I got an email response from one of the authors!

Thanks Monica for your email. I will look at this and get back to you on Saturday.

All the best.

I get a response almost every time I email authors. I don't think most scientists ever get any messages regarding their papers. :)

Yeah, that is awesome @sulkaharo . Anyways, I should probably go to bed. GI doctor wants to see me in clinic tomorrow morning for GI problems (not gastroparesis-related, fortunately). I also have to do 24 hour urine test tomorrow. Of course I waited until the last minute as I have an endo appt on Monday. Yucky.
My endo is the coolest though
Probably going to stay up all night though...

About catching tubing, my worst (by far) was getting tubing caught on a button on someones jacket as they were getting on the tube and I was getting off

Getting the tubing stuck between the portions of the doorknob is fun too.

@bewest I managed to get it untangled before the doors closed, it did pull the cannula out enough to stop insulin delivery though (the only time I've had that happen)
but that was rather frantic

yeah, but at least the pump didn't get dragged down the platform by the train
Chris Oattes
@cjo20
Feb 13 2015 19:06
thats why it was rather frantic untangling :P

Feb 13 2015 19:07
yup, I can imagine
did the other know what was happening?

not really, other than something was tangled in their jacket
