I got some install errors
Running gitdb-0.6.4/setup.py -q bdist_egg --dist-dir /tmp/easy_install-F3bYA7/gitdb-0.6.4/egg-dist-tmp-Xr2t2c gitdb/_fun.c:1:20: fatal error: Python.h: No such file or directory
@bewest that's the only error I got after looking through the prompt
I did get at least 3-5 warnings but that doesn't actually count cause I read them and they are not serious, or at least they don't appear to be.
@bewest the remedy for that error apparently is this sudo apt-get install python-dev

So prior to installing OpenAPS this should be loaded (please put in the wiki) :D sudo apt-get install git python python-software-properties python-setuptools python-dev

So this new image is going to be > 8 GB, just so you all know. I am installing all of the python stuff on it along with a bunch of JavaScript packages. sudo apt-get install python-numpy python-scipy python-matplotlib ipython ipython-notebook python-pandas python-sympy python-nose

@bewest There is an epaper display for Raspberry Pi. I'm fascinated. It would be perfect for checking on "updates" on an OpenAPS http://www.embeddedartists.com/products/displays/lcd_27_epaper.php
I bet an Adafruit case that is meant for 2.7" displays would fit that thing
But for now, I am just going to use my phone as a hotspot and SSH in...

I'm working on uploading the image....It has python and a bunch of JavaScript packages. Uploading to dropbox...

actually it's under 8 GB...but whatever

Hmm interesting, MedTronic is in full swing to upgrade people here to 640G. I assume they might push that on us the next time we need to switch pumps.

Cool, I live in The Netherlands, so might also get that upgrade soon.

The downside is, the new pump uses new RF protocol and frequency, so any kind of an OpenAPS won't work on it for some time

Right its on 2.4Ghz instead of 868/916Mhz the nice thing is that the meter has the capability to do bolusing so OpenAPS should once things are figured out for it
Just a matter of someone figuring out what has changed on the carelink 2.4Ghz stick
Not that i'm even sure the Carelink 2.4Ghz stick is even available yet cause I haven't seen it on medtronic's site but i did see fcc filings for it

I'm devastated. The Tandem t:simulator app for Android didn't contain anything even remotely interesting when I decompiled it.

I'm going to upload the new and updated version of the image tonight. I left my laptop unplugged on accident and it didn't upload last night. At the hospital today and probably going to be sick tonight as they give me a ton of steroids and Benadryl and stuff cause I react to the infusion if otherwise. But supposedly that's a good sign according to my doctor as you will likely respond to the immunosuppression.
But sick of doing this crap all of the time.

@stavlor they have talked a bit about a planned bluetooth-controlled pump. I was hoping there would be some clues about interacting with the actual device, but that doesn't seem to be the case.
Paul Andrel
@stavlor
Jun 15 2015 18:48
@mgranberry ah it would be nice if at least one manufacturer made it easy for us but guess the FDA doesn't like easy

@stavlor DanaR pump is easy BT pump, but has some serious disadvantages to modern pumps http://www.diabetes-support.org.uk/info/?page_id=719
it is not Roche :(
Matthias Granberry

It bothers me that pump manufacturers don't seem to get that insulin is insulin, regardless of whether it is delivered as basal/bolus. Failing to calculate basal iob is unfortunate, but failing to give temp basal history is unforgivable.
Lori
@LoriLori
Jun 15 2015 19:40
what bothers me is that I can get Roche or OmniPod , neither control it :(
OmniPod future of pumps, but engineering deparments is too good
Matthias Granberry
@mgranberry
Jun 15 2015 19:42
lol. It's a pain when they get security right, isn't it?
Lori
@LoriLori
Jun 15 2015 19:42
wish they were some startup like dexcom and use modern cheap open technology :)
Omni mus have too much money, there are no debug headers
Matthias Granberry
@mgranberry
Jun 15 2015 19:43
with any luck they'll use BLE with poor key exchange in the next pump
Lori
@LoriLori
Jun 15 2015 19:44
too much money means they could afford custom chips, buld just for omni
Matthias Granberry
@mgranberry
Jun 15 2015 19:44
surely they would like to have a chance at a profit with their pumps.
Lori
@LoriLori
Jun 15 2015 19:45
they risk production, with no option to fix anything
they must be full of money
even chips are preprogramed before put on board, and no option to preprogram once soldered
Matthias Granberry
@mgranberry
Jun 15 2015 19:46
that's dangerous
Lori
@LoriLori
Jun 15 2015 19:47
obviously they have no issue risking it at all
I n 1992 a young boy was diagnosed with diabetes. His father, hunting for the best possible treatment, did exhaustive research. He found that insulin pump therapy ... gathered the best diabetes and technology experts he could find, and in July, 2000, we formed a company, Insulet Corporation
Lori
@LoriLori
Jun 15 2015 19:53
very true best technology experts :)
Matthias Granberry
@mgranberry
Jun 15 2015 19:54
I saw that and started looking into their financials. They aren't hurting, but like everyone else in the diabetes tech industry they have good enough accountants to leave them losing small amounts of money every quarter. It looks like executives pocket everything that would be profit.
they don't even leak informatin what they use except for what we know
an interview could leak something :)

Has anyone used an SDR to listen to the omnipod RF?
Matthias Granberry
@mgranberry
Jun 15 2015 19:58
that might be interesting.
nah. I don't know anyone nearby that uses one.
The Freescale wireless chips from that era don't do very sophisticated wireless so it shouldn't be terribly hard to decode, but I don't know of anyone very technical that has tried

Riley is really getting into gymnastics; wondering if an omnipod might be a nice solution to the problem of disconnecting and reconnecting the pump.

want to borrow a HackRF? I'll ship one to the Czech Republic if you want to play.

wow, HackRF looks nice
wish it could break aes

What makes you think they're using AES?
Lori
@LoriLori
Jun 15 2015 20:05
every 10cents chip has aes :(
if they paid custom chip :(
Matthias Granberry
@mgranberry
Jun 15 2015 20:06
Did they get a custom asic made? I figured they used an off-the-shelf part for that
Lori
@LoriLori
Jun 15 2015 20:06
no, only think I could find about radio chip is that it is customer specific
we can't even buy it, nor get data sheet for it
Matthias Granberry
@mgranberry
Jun 15 2015 20:07
what a wasteful thing for them to spend money on.
Lori
@LoriLori
Jun 15 2015 20:08
asic is from freescale PR news, stating they did it for omnipod
Matthias Granberry
@mgranberry
Jun 15 2015 20:08
surely it's just a different package for an OTS part
Lori
@LoriLori
Jun 15 2015 20:09
true :) its 4x10 instead of 4x8
Matthias Granberry
@mgranberry
Jun 15 2015 20:09
is it silicon under an epoxy blob?
Lori
@LoriLori
Jun 15 2015 20:09
no, it is regular 4x10 QFN

My serious insurance got resolved. I got dumped off of my secondary insurance cause I turned 26 and the insurance company made a bunch of mistakes. Basically I was supposed to stay on past the age of 26 and had filled out paperwork and my doctors had too because I am unable to provide for myself at this point of time due to my disabilities, but 5 weeks ago, I got notice that the plan was ending and somehow it fell through even though we thought it was taken care of a long time ago...like a year ago. I was seriously worried about it. I just got a phone call from human resources from the employer saying that my coverage is reinstated!
So it's been a stressful 5 weeks cause insurance companies can pretty much almost do whatever they want.

But yeah I wouldn't be able to keep a job right now between all of my medical care and not feeling well. I do hope that changes though.
