I was a little confused at first. Next time you tweetstorm like that, reply to the last tweet when composing each subsequent one, so that someone who sees one of them can see the whole thread. Not the most obvious of tricks, but it works great.

I should also introduce you to @blindtechy: he emailed us about the same thing.
Nah don't delete.
Just FYI for next time.

I know. But I suck. New to Twitter kind of and was using the TweetStorm app.
Scott Leibrand
@scottleibrand
May 17 2015 00:06
Interesting. We should get them to fix that app. And that doesn't mean you suck.

I would like to meet him/her. If we can get them involved it would be great. The blind have access to a bunch of programming books via Bookshare.org and programming is a common technical field for the blind to do.
TweetSplit
Sorry distracted.
But VO is extremely solid with respect to accessibility for the blind. So using VO accessible apps is very practical for development on #OpenAPS for the VIs (visually impaired)

I met a mom of a recently diagnosed boy at a local JDRF meetup that was blind, discussed creating more alerts using pushover since VoiceOver would work with them
Scott Leibrand
@scottleibrand
May 17 2015 00:12
Yeah, I use voiceover when driving sometimes.

That's awesome @jasoncalabrese ! I can't talk to much as I am visiting family right now though :( .I only see them a couple times a year though so it's important but I will talk to you later tonight and fill out the form and keep my word.

Fixed the tweet storm. Obviously that app has some issues but it's nice.

@scottleibrand I meant the TweetSplit app
Sorry
I got distracted because I was visiting with family. Posted my tweets via TweetSplit app on the way to relatives https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/tweetsplit/id460008334?mt=8
I need to get off. Too distracted. It's loud here.

Awesome but at relatives right now. I need to change the host name tonight and fill out the NS foundation survey as well. Way too distracted right now and supposed to be socializing :P

Still with relatives but I am going to make a ZIP file with a preconfigured installation of Ubuntu individuals with visual impairments can just unzip the files and dump it onto a micro SD card then put it into the Pi and boot it and get an iPhone hotspot going and access it via an accessible SSH client via Voice Over so they can hit the ground running

@diabeticgonewild I tried today the ubilinux variant for edison. Ubilinux uses the same kernel than intel uses. So the errormessages are the same "unable to enumerate USB device on port1". I dont see a chance to get it run without a new Kernel.
has anybody expirences programming bluez ? I am not 100 percent but i guess a saw the prob why it is not possible to connect accu check pump with an linux system.
Oliver Schumacher
@oschumac
May 17 2015 11:45
When pump is discovering it sends sdp telegramms. With the search for 1101 xxxxxxx uuid serial com. The problem is it ask for appname = 0x0100 hex.
I tried but was not able to register a service name called 0x0100 cause of the api written in c needs a string. Has anyone ideas?
Matthias Granberry
@mgranberry
May 17 2015 15:27
Can you get away with using something like char[] name = {1,0}?
You might need to modify bluez.
Oliver Schumacher
@oschumac
May 17 2015 18:34
i tried allready. but when giving a string like that the api it cut off.

As for getting in contact with people with diabetes with visual impairments (there are lots of them) the two people I have connected with so far have been very eager and excited to get involved with #OpenAPS. I have received multiple emails from them. Although I can't really do this for average users, in order to make this accessible to them, I am going to make an image of Ubuntu with SSH, WiFi drivers, a WiFi hotspot, and #OpenAPS already set up and preconfigured so they can access it via SSH on an iPhone or laptop using whatever screen reader they want to use. Again I am only providing images of the Ubuntu OS for a Raspberry Pi 2 for the blind or visually impaired due to accessibility issues. Intend on getting this done on Tuesday before I do chemo on Wednesday.

OpenAPS is really the only efficient way that gives them access to their data in an accessible and integrated manner. I was on Twitter last night and came across somebody with T1D with a VI and I realized that this would open doors for them. Plus there are plenty of computer scientists that are blind and happen to have T1D. One of them is Tom Ley who was editor of Voice of the Blind Diabetic and he would be good for getting involved in this project.

So sorry can't edit this... On a phone. My apologies!

@oschumac would help to show some logs in a gist or something
for carelink stick, when I get failure to enumerate, I take out stick and plug it in again several times
4 - 5 times usually results in enumerating the stick once
Oliver Schumacher
@oschumac
May 17 2015 20:22
Hi Ben, you talking about carelinc stick ? Dmesg logs ?
Ben West
@bewest
May 17 2015 20:22
talking about the bluetooth accucheck re logs
Oliver Schumacher
@oschumac
May 17 2015 20:24
Okay i have wireshark logs. One more question what is a gist ? You mean a github repo ?
Ben West
@bewest
May 17 2015 20:28
sort of, yeah, gist is a github feature where they host small git repos (for log files/ideas) without any of the project management stuff
Oliver Schumacher
@oschumac
May 17 2015 20:29
okay i write i little together to understand the file an upload it.
Ben West
@bewest
May 17 2015 20:29
you can just make a new one pretty easy:
https://gist.github.com/ allows drag/drop upload
Oliver Schumacher
@oschumac
May 17 2015 20:38
for any reason drag/drop not working :-(.
Ben West
@bewest
May 17 2015 20:41
dunno, sometimes I just put "hello world" or whatever in there to create it, then git clone, and git add what i need from my system
basically allows using git like fancy copy/paste

Hey this is pretty funny but we were visiting relatives last night and my mom put her purse with the car keys in the car for a minute and the car automatically locked the keys in the car. My uncle unlocked the door with a wired coat hanger. Now I know how to break into my own car! LOL!
Ben West
@bewest
May 17 2015 20:56
you can probably get openaps to unlock your car at some point in the future, the needed RF is compatible with the hardware: http://adamsblog.aperturelabs.com/2013/03/you-can-ring-my-bell-adventures-in-sub.html
diabeticgonewild
@diabeticgonewild
May 17 2015 20:57
LOL awesome!
So theoretically the Intel Edison is compatible with OpenAPS as long as If an error occurs you unplug/plug 3-5 times?
Like on Ubilinux
Ben West
@bewest
May 17 2015 20:59
hmmm, conflating a lot of independent variables there
I'm 80-99% sure I can get decocare to run on intel edison
using the carelink stick
diabeticgonewild
@diabeticgonewild
May 17 2015 21:00
Got it. Thank you.
Ben West
@bewest
May 17 2015 21:00
the problem is not a hardware problem, but software
we just need to install bitbake and compile the kernel we want
diabeticgonewild
@diabeticgonewild
May 17 2015 21:00
Yeah for sure. Eventually they will get it right.
Ben West
@bewest
May 17 2015 21:00
dunno who they is, but one of us will likely have to do this
at that point we can host the kernel image online so people can use opkg install ...
diabeticgonewild
@diabeticgonewild
May 17 2015 21:01
Like a release of Ubuntu
Got it
Ben West
@bewest
May 17 2015 21:01
no, not a release, it's just another package
the kernel itself is one package to install
diabeticgonewild
@diabeticgonewild
May 17 2015 21:02
Oh got it
Ben West
@bewest
May 17 2015 21:02
with the appropriate kernel, it should work, AFAICT
3.10 is particularly rough
I think 3.8 - 3.10 or so is the set that doesn't work at all
I think some of the legacy usb code came back in 3.11 and improves in every release
in 3.18 there was an additional change to recognize medtronic as a serial device automatically, built in basically
does nothing to fix the enumeration problem though
it just so happens it should also be fixed in a way that is not specific to medtronic
I'm using 3.16 on my laptop, which is my main computer
I still get usb errors in my logs all the time...
when I tested the 3.18 builds, it worked much more reliably, but on very odd occasions would not work

Hi Ben you would be my hero when you get an Edison running, with carelink usb stick. In this moment i stopped to believe it will run with the old Kernel.
Ben West
@bewest
May 17 2015 21:22
yeah, likely needs new kernel
Oliver Schumacher
@oschumac
May 17 2015 21:22
In never got it run one time. With on simple linux Knoppix with kernel 3.19 on any Laptop i tried it was fantastic. I have to ask my friend Holger how far he is with the complete knoppix usb stick. It would be nice for developers to work with an system ready to go.

My mom is crazy but what would you expect she's related to me. She thinks I am breaking the law by getting involved with OpenAPS
I told her no, it's my devices.
Oliver Schumacher

Not sure if it's helpful, but I've found that my CareLink stick often fails to enumerate properly when it's plugged into a USB hub with other devices, but works fine when on a direct USB connection to my PC (I use a USB extension cord from the back of the chassis). Maybe something to do with marginal power?
Ben West
@bewest
May 17 2015 22:40
you may have luck with a powered usb 2.0 hub
somehing which does enumeration internally and re-exports it's own usb bus
