One of the things that's been hindering me from doing this is the WiFi driver on my laptop is jacked up. It won't connect to any WiFi whatsoever. But, luckily I have extra WiFi adapters laying around so I just plugged one in and problem solved (kind of)!

I guess I better put in a Dexcom sensor if I want to get it up and running tonight....

Another battery question for the masses: when it gives the 'Low Battery' warning and shows zero bars in the battery state, (1) how long do you typically have until it shuts down and (2) are any functions besides the backlight and communication with glucose monitors disables (i.e. does it lose the ability to talk with the CareLink stick)?

Depends, more insulin takes more power, more alerts too

I'm thinking specifically with a 5-minute loop running
May have answered my own question—it appears to have cut off RF entirely

Yes it cuts off rf immediately and doesn't give any warning
Pump still works for another day or two, but without rf

Great so I have to choose between the CIDP (chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy) and JDRF walk in October because they both happen the same day. https://www.gbs-cidp.org/take-action/events/houston-walk-and-roll/
CIDP is worse than T1D. Chronic pain and can rob your ability to walk....

JDRF is more exciting more. CIDP more devastating...
