Liking the new medicine I'm on....except it affects depth perception and it makes me "lazy" when I take it at night...until I wake up in the morning. Apparently my "joint pain" according to my rheumatologist is not arthritis and it's probably neuropathic pain from my autoimmune neuropathies, so I got samples for Lyrica. It's too early to tell if that's the issue cause I was just given a bunch of steroids and that suppresses my immune system but I will likely find out soon. But so far, I have been a lot more comfortable and I feel more normal and less miserable.b
But yeah, don't really want to do anything tonight even though OpenAPS is awesome!

I posted to the OpenAPS group. I'm going to make a write up for setup of OpenAPS and conceptual things about it. I forgot to mention that I need to make an explanation for plugins...

you might prefer sublimetext or prose.io, not sure

I don't know much markdown but it's not really a big deal. Cheat Sheets!

I'm trying to "dumb it down" as much as possible. This is very much work in progress and I will have to read it over several times and play things out in my head. https://gist.github.com/diabeticgonewild/5a2755fc031b68f06ba6

So yeah, I am occassionally updating the Gist. Does anyone want to work on this at the same time on a Google Doc?
Like collaboratively? (I did this with my peers in online classes)

If somebody could take a look at my Gist, and see if it makes sense, it would be appreciated. I just made a writeup for the Raspberry Pi 2 section...

So I found a very nice tutorial for setting up the Pi with no cables whatsoever (besides power). It uses Raspbian for the install, so I can just recommend NOOBS as @scottleibrand and @danamlewis recommend along with that Canakit or whatever on Amazon. Tutorial [Part 1]: http://blog.self.li/post/63281257339/raspberry-pi-part-1-basic-setup-without-cables Going to take that information and adapt that to the OpenAPS setup instructions

Well I take that back...not NOOBS, but Raspbian, which you two are using, but still. It avoids a hassle.

We are having a problems with our Java/Android port of OpenAPS parse more than one page of data. Anyone have ideas on how to fix this?

Sorry, it was more meant for those that have access to my repository
I unfortunately am incompetent in all of this
So, I'm just relaying a message from our programmer
I'm not even sure it is going to be needed.
So far, accessing the first page of temp basal history and Bolus Wizard history has given us enough data to accurately calculate IOB and COB
As we don't really care about events that no longer impact BG

Right after a page rollover you might erroneously ignore some <3h old data, which might mean estimating IOB lower than actual... Have you verified whether decocare does it correctly?

Yep :) (@bewest replying to a super old message that I finally saw re @amazaheri 's work) > @danamlewis will love the neutral origin for iob I think

Very cool case
@danamlewis I am meeting with a friend of mine to review the data available and work on extending the reports.

@amazaheri I like that case, but it's not fully enclosed.

I was reading an assortment of books on the Raspberry Pi from like Packt Publishing, O'Reilly Media, and Safari Publishing, that I get pretty much for free minus my subscription fee via Bookshare.org to help out on getting the Raspberry Pi setup nicely. One of the books said that Adafruit supports (and creates releases for the firmware) and backs up all of the hardware they sell on the Raspberry Pi. That's a deal-breaker for me..

I am recommending the Canakit from Amazon, but I am recommending a lower-profile WiFi adapter cause if you take it places with you and you are trying to be "portable", you can "bend" higher profile sticks and it sucks. Hence for now, I am recommending multiple CareLink sticks, until RileyLink becomes a more viable solution.
And apparently FireFox needs to go on a diet, cause it freezes when I use Amazon.com and maybe Amazon needs to go on a diet too. (I need to go on a diet. Gained a ton of weight after being on mineralcorticosteroids from low blood pressure problems, and became a couch potato cause I never really fully recovered from all of that crap and I became a couch potato...I am a fatty now :P )

Actually computer kind of sucks today. Need to restart it. Wouldn't have this problem as much if I was running Unix, but Windows is more powerful with respect to software solutions, especially with respect to accessibility, which is nice when I read a lot.
