@bewest that is the pump body still, thats just the little board in it
I will try and pop open my old snap very carefully

May 20 2015 02:05
nah, don't bother
too precious
should find that connector
so we can just plug ribbon cable into it
well, actually
tbh, after I disassembled my medtronic pump, we still were able to get it to boot

this thing is small edison kit
dangit
it's ruined
shipping smushed it
broke the brackets on teh bottom

it was shipped poorly
I believe ups had stack of boxes sitting on top
the other board was fine
it's super small thugh
can stack like 10 of these and it's still smaller than pump

It looks like a 4
Go Intel :) that looks seriously cool. I'm going to have to order one to go with the 722 I'm picking up from Houston.

Jeez. Gitter hates the new android chrome. It looks like it and a 4ah battery would fit inside an insulin pump case.

Why don't you just use the Gitter App?

PW lockers for the win...like 1password or whatever

Yeah, 1Password has excellent mobile integration.

wow, I always assumed the edison was much larger, nice

Yeah - so we startet in february with the Intel Edison. First problem was the old kernel. Decocare need newer kernel. I hope bewest can fix this problem?

@StephenBlackWasAlreadyTaken I did too; Intel was showing off the Edison at Maker Faire last weekend and that was the first time I realized they have a few different form factors. According to their rep, they "worked very hard on the power input" but didn't elaborate more. I've corrupted the SD card filesystem on RPi enough times due to a cheap power cable, an inadequate power supply, a few hard power-downs... so I was interested.

SD cards aren't good for many write cycles either, so the fault might not have entirely been the RPi.

Some Pictures of my Rig. At First the xdrip. Which we use instead of Nightscout uploader.

At next the Edison rig. Running nicely. I use the org Intel minibreakout. Plus an lipo and wixel. Wixel is working on Edison, but need an extra Level Shifter. Need to make some lines of code for getting calibrations out of the xdrip app.
Oliver Schumacher
@oschumac
May 20 2015 18:07
I think also interresting. After blowing up some Lipo's in the xdrip rig i use an extra Chip for low/high voltage protection directly soldered to the Lipo.
20150315_145607.jpg
The lipos are 2 bugs each at Hobbyking.com. My favoured Hobbystore. :-)

@oschumac What size is that battery and how long is it lasting for you?
Jason Calabrese
@jasoncalabrese
May 20 2015 18:17
really like the idea of using the Edison
Oliver Schumacher
@oschumac
May 20 2015 18:19
It is an 1000 mA gives 12h up time with wixel and wireless enabled.

Are you running an uploader applicaton on the Edison? WiFi only, or is there a cellular modem too?
Oliver Schumacher
@oschumac
May 20 2015 18:21
@ecc1. In this moment it is not productive. It is only a development kit. I wanted to get the carelink to be running. But with the old intel Kernel i did not make it.

@mgranberry its a known issue with rpi re: SD getting fried from power cycles. Did that after 4 days at the beginning of lioping
Toby Canning
@TC2013
May 20 2015 18:22
lioping?
lying while hoping?
hopping
Jason Calabrese
@jasoncalabrese
May 20 2015 18:22
you don't liop?
Dana Lewis
@danamlewis
May 20 2015 18:23
Looping. And hoping. :)
Toby Canning
@TC2013
May 20 2015 18:23
We do liop!
Dana Lewis
@danamlewis
May 20 2015 18:23
No idea why my phone won't type looping without autocorrecting to lioping.
Toby Canning
@TC2013

gotta love it

May 20 2015 18:24
I love looping better though ;)

May 20 2015 18:25
I like the Edison. the Edison rig is smaller than a pack of cigarettes. And with i little bit bigger case. You can get a large Lipo in it. So uptime could be like 24 or 36 h.

@bewest easy_install and pip both autoselect the bdist for pypi/openaps when installing with simply the package name, but since it's compiled for x86 it fails to install on ARM. using the full URL to the bdist_egg or sdist versions works fine, e.g. easy_install -Z https://pypi.python.org/packages/2.7/o/openaps/openaps-0.0.1-py2.7.egg#md5=aef5d4f816184922836a47537f87129a but this involves specifying the version number. I could be missing a way to specify the package format while still choosing the latest version.

weird
maybe I refrain from uploading bdist
I've had some success starting to analyze the low level frames, it's based on existing standard
Matthias Granberry

@bewest is that wireless?
Ben West
@bewest
May 20 2015 20:15
the contour nextlink is a glucometer with usb interface, and radio that can talk to the pump
this transcript is of carelink java applet using the usb to talk to the pump
after the initialization, the pump commands and responses are clearly visible
readpumpmodel 141, with result 522 is obvious
later in the transcript I can clearly identify eg bolus records in the data received from pump
I can almost write a driver for it... I just don't quite understand how the power on is initialized

@loudnate I removed the bdist packages from pypi
most now have bdist_egg (the egg) and a source package
exception is the openaps.contrib package which only has source in pypi

hello all. I am trying to get a Headstart on my #openaps implementation. I want to start on the modeling. and I am curious of your thoughts about programming languages. I am most familiar with JavaScript. But I know a little Python, but it has been a a while and will be more overhead in catching up on that. is it possible to write in JavaScript? I am trying to imagine how all of these parts fit together. and wonder if there is a benefit to using python versus JavaScript.
