So I found a tool today, visualgdb, that allows embedded development from visual studio along remote linux development in c or c++ with debugging.

Visual studio always had a good debugger experience.

I see I wasn't the only one trying to be funny calling their NightScout watch NightWatch. I'll have to rename, maybe DayWatch and see if anyone gets it

@diabeticgonewild I do understand why you rock the mathlab though. productivity with a tool one knows well is so much faster. plus, I guess with mathlab the testing has been done and will at least give something to compare to when/if one does port to javascript/python/c++ or whatever

Yeah MATLAB is awesome. Even my twin brother thinks so! I think when you port things in MATLAB it does so pretty effectively or so I've heard
It is a super efficient language for dealing with data structures. A project like this was kind of meant for it (almost) but so is JS and Python

Yeah I can't wait to do my infusions at home (it surprisingly costs less), but I am at the hospital today. My heart rate resting was 116 which sucks but vital signs were otherwise alright.
I think I have made peace with the autoimmune autonomic neuropathy that I have. The other autoimmune peripheral neuropathy that I have, CIDP, not so much.

@bewest Is it possible to delete events from the pump's history?
Ben West
@bewest

no you cannot delete stuff

That would be a big no no from a device makers perspective so wouldn't surprise me its locked down
Matthias Granberry
@mgranberry
Jun 25 2015 18:47
exactly. Device logs are there for liability reasons as much as anything. They are intended to maintain history showing that the device was operating as instructed.
Ben West

I mean, there is a "wipe" command I think that seems to work similar to "restore to factory defaults"
yeah, the entire history is oriented around "prove the pump worked correctly"
in terms of listing all the individual operations (button presses, etc)

Our pump is used and someone at one point used it with the wrong year (in the future). We had to tell our APS to exclude any events from the "future"

hehehe
okk
well, you can do bolus wizard setup
it's a huge log entry
doing that several times will eat through several pages easily

That's an interesting way of side-stepping the issue. :)

How long are your AAA batteries lasting when running radio every 5 minutes through OpenAPS?
Ben West
@bewest
Jun 25 2015 18:49
the bolus wizard change record lists everything that was in there PLUS al the new settings, so its pretty big
you can also do same thing in reverse tie
set clock to past, change wizard, and crank clock up to now
Ben West

battery, I don't run openaps 24/7 but I do use the radio a lot
I haven't noticed much difference yet
on days where I do extreme testing, like when I ran 500 read_clocks, I notice the battery goes quicker after
it's definitely a drain but still lasts longer than most battery cycles, phone, laptop, etc...

Hey! So I have a Rasperry B+ in the mail, a Carelink USB and a old Medtronic pump. Do I need any more hardware in order to start playing around (software/code is another story!)
Ben West
@bewest
Jun 25 2015 23:45
nope, you can probably use ubuntu inside vmware to play around if you can't wait
Mikyla
@divishinating
Jun 25 2015 23:45
I can't!!
Ben West
@bewest
Jun 25 2015 23:46
vmware is pretty good about patching usb system through to guest os
most linux will work, including ubuntu, debian, etc
usb cable is usually good so you can move the stick around independent of everything
Mikyla

Jun 25 2015 23:47
Oh dear, this is getting to the part where I need to know more about the non-hardware part.
So I need a computer running Ubuntu and a usb cable. Check! :)
Ben West
@bewest
Jun 25 2015 23:48
after that you need python installed with python-setuptools
if you can run easy_install you're ready
likely have some python stuff already
Mikyla
@divishinating
Jun 25 2015 23:49
Perfect! :) Thanks so much for the help! Now I have something to play around with until the little creature arrives in the mail.
Ben West
@bewest
Jun 25 2015 23:50
yeah, you'll have to run these similar steps when it comes
if you don't have easy_install you can probably install it like this: sudo apt-get install python-setuptools

Bought the computer last year did a partition and put windows 7 (school stuff) on it but was going to put Ubuntu on it too.
Finally a reason to get my rear in gear

@divishinating there is a setup guide in the works that @diabeticgonewild is revving up right now. It might not be fully serviceable by the time you need it, but it should be a start
