No lvm underneath, some years ago I did an extensive documentation on resizing /that/, but it’s utterly userless in our case :)

Apologies if this has been answered somewhere else - with the Edison no longer being sold - what's the the SBC of choice going forward? Or is it still best to raid ebay for edisons?

The Edison + Explorer board combination is still the rig of choice for most people, so if you can find Edisons I think it's still a good option.
But most of the new development is around Raspberry Pi Zero W plus the new Explorer HAT. You can get that now, but the software is still in early beta.

@pottsynz_twitter yup for eBay
@garykidd please do not use 0.7.0-dev as a primary rig
garykidd
@garykidd
May 24 2018 14:31
I've mostly been using it as my primary rig but have others on standby---not sure why pulling latest dev didnt work for me yesterday though.
rrrrr....can't win. did it again...left pump suspended rising rapidly.
Jon Cluck
@cluckj
May 24 2018 14:34
@garykidd there's an "unsuspend pump when temp basal isn't set" option that might help
garykidd
@garykidd
May 24 2018 14:35
yeah--I know...but I changed it recently--maybe change it back..pluses and minuses I guess.
Jon Cluck
@cluckj
May 24 2018 14:36
I've gone back and forth on it too :)
I kind of want to see if pushover can be configured to send "hey doofus your pump has been suspended for 45 minutes did you forget to resume it after taking a shower?" messages, because I do it far too often as well
garykidd
@garykidd
May 24 2018 14:41
pushover is great idea---NS alarm almost as good. I've done same thing a bunch when I start new reservoir as well.
Jon Cluck
@cluckj
May 24 2018 14:42
hah
the NS alarm has the same point-of-failure in my case (me not paying attention / keeping NS open)
garykidd
@garykidd
May 24 2018 14:45
good point..me too actually.
Jon Cluck
@cluckj
May 24 2018 14:46
but I always remember to put my watch back on
garykidd
@garykidd
May 24 2018 14:47
hey--got you there--S3 Frontier is IP68...so just keep it on.
th122
@th122
May 24 2018 14:48
@cluckj if the watch has some heart-rate or step-counter monitoring, you could check for conditions where the watch seems to be worn while the pump is suspended for > 15 minutes and have the watch rattle you :)
garykidd
@garykidd
May 24 2018 14:48
but good things are heads are attached
Jon Cluck
@cluckj
May 24 2018 14:49
ah, I like to charge my watch while I'm showering
a "not looping" pushover alert would do the same, and be more useful
th122
@th122
May 24 2018 14:52
Was just an idea since you mentioned that you never forgot your shackles - in that case they could alert you of your other shackle ...
Jon Cluck
@cluckj
May 24 2018 14:53
haha
I've worn a watch for decades, but a tubed pump for only 9 months. It's not a part of me in the same way :)
garykidd
@garykidd
May 24 2018 14:54
omipod prior?
Jon Cluck
@cluckj
May 24 2018 14:55
yep
th122
@th122
May 24 2018 14:59
I don’t disconnect - the pump gets to hover over the splash zone. Since I rarely take a brief shower, that seemed the better option. Definitely different for the less water-addicted.
garykidd
@garykidd
May 24 2018 15:03
@th122 I take long showers---with SMBs enabled you might perfer to disconnect...I sometimes take a hit before disconnecting too.
Jon Cluck
@cluckj
May 24 2018 15:04
that also gives some wiggle room in forgetting to resume
garykidd
@garykidd
May 24 2018 15:07
@cluckj are you running/testing `--tune-dia-and-peak=true
by chance?
Jon Cluck
@cluckj
May 24 2018 15:08
testing, not running
th122
@th122
May 24 2018 15:09
@garykidd Temperature calibration of the sensor (and the reactions of the loop) I hadn’t considered, even though I had read about the libre sensor being subject to temperature swings it didn’t even occur to me to test how much the enlite I’m wearing would be affected. Good point (I’m guessing you were referring to absorption as well?)
Jon Cluck
@cluckj
May 24 2018 15:09
I'm more focused on doing x12 and explorer-hat dev/support at the moment
garykidd
@garykidd
May 24 2018 15:11
@th122 just delivery/absorption...if there's a temperature influence--I'm not sure it impacts anything substantially......though I have noticed BG readings being affected by pressure on the sensor like when you roll over on that side wi=hile sleeping.
@cluckj gotchya---what version are you runnign on pi/pihat rig....hoping mine comes this weekend.
Jon Cluck
@cluckj
May 24 2018 15:13
@garykidd 0.7.0-dev, but master will work on it (albeit slower)
unless you can be really attentive to logs and have a backup rig on standby, 0.7.0-dev is not recommended :)
garykidd
@garykidd
May 24 2018 15:14
thx...what power source are you using---draws more than edisons right?
yeah---will try again tonight to revert to latest dev...had trouble for some reason with the latest commit
Jon Cluck
@cluckj
May 24 2018 15:15
I'm using a 2200mAh cylindrical Li-Ion battery, and drop charging the rig on a Qi pad every chance I get
garykidd
@garykidd
May 24 2018 15:16
nice...can you send me a link for the Qi pad you're using---that'd be awesome.
I suppose once it's stable enough that'd allow for completely sealing rig so it's watertight
Dana Lewis
@danamlewis
May 24 2018 15:17
@garykidd or just run master since we released a week ish ago ;)
Jon Cluck
@cluckj
May 24 2018 15:17
I soldered the adafruit barebones Qi pad to the pi0, but @efidoman figured out one that plugs in
@garykidd yep, that's the plan
garykidd
@garykidd
May 24 2018 15:17
I like to solder especialyl when it saves space
th122
@th122
May 24 2018 15:17
FSL and temperature changes: Here’s some fun experiments
Jon Cluck
@cluckj
May 24 2018 15:18
okay, be careful with the solder pads on the pi, they're....not awesome. https://www.adafruit.com/product/1901

@th122
May 24 2018 15:19
@garykidd I have been looking for the "tune-dia-and-peak” you mentioned but came up empty. Got any pointer for me?
garykidd
@garykidd
May 24 2018 15:21
I solder each of my explorer rigs batteries --it saved a decent amount of space--there OK to solder but maybe not the easiest either
th122
@th122
May 24 2018 15:21
… Ah, found something in oref0
garykidd
@garykidd
May 24 2018 15:23
yeah---in 0.7.0 dev
@cluckj and then using something like https://www.adafruit.com/product/1781
to power it
Jon Cluck
@cluckj
May 24 2018 15:24
yes, I'm using that exact one :laughing:
garykidd
@garykidd
May 24 2018 15:24
how long is that giving you--probably blurred by dropping it on the charging pad whenever you can
Jon Cluck
@cluckj
May 24 2018 15:24
I wanted to use a Li-Ion with that setup rather than a LiPo because it gets warm
I get 4-6 hours away from a charger
garykidd
@garykidd
May 24 2018 15:25
yeah---I am using 2500 mah ones and myu first one just went caput
Jon Cluck
@cluckj
May 24 2018 15:26
the drop charging is super effective: 11:25:31 up 31 days, 20:40
garykidd
@garykidd
May 24 2018 15:26
but that's on explorer so it doesnt usually get too warm
wpw
wow
Jon Cluck
@cluckj
May 24 2018 15:27
I had to reboot to upgrade something, but before that it was 40+ days too
garykidd
@garykidd
May 24 2018 15:27
4-6 hours is pretty good...wonder how much more efficiency you guys can tweak out of pihats...
maybe I just run 2 matched cells in parallel
Jon Cluck
@cluckj
May 24 2018 15:27
the goal is 18 hours
garykidd
@garykidd
May 24 2018 15:27
otherwise
18 off of 2200 mah? that'd be impressive
Jon Cluck
@cluckj
May 24 2018 15:28
haha, well 3000mAh
garykidd
@garykidd
May 24 2018 15:28
I think I have one cell that claims to be 3,700 mah ---same form factor
as that 2,200
I never tested it fully though
Jon Cluck
@cluckj
May 24 2018 15:30
ah
Jon Cluck
@cluckj
May 24 2018 15:31
maximizing the time the Pi spends idle (by optimizing/rewriting code) is one space where we're working to improve battery life
garykidd
@garykidd
May 24 2018 15:32
makes sense...how much does using the go-code help for comms?
Jon Cluck
@cluckj
May 24 2018 15:32
significantly -- it cuts minutes out of the loop time on the pi0
it even makes the edison+explorer run faster & more power efficiently
garykidd
@garykidd
May 24 2018 15:33
are the go-codes used in latest dev--or just 0.7.0?
Jon Cluck
@cluckj
May 24 2018 15:33
just 0.7.0
is that the kind of battery you have?
and do you want to do some battery testing? :D
(once you get your HAT)
will be happy to test real life battery capacity
Jon Cluck
@cluckj
May 24 2018 15:44
oh snap that's got a protection circuit and everything, but the wrong kind of connector :)
garykidd
@garykidd
May 24 2018 15:45
i cut the connector off right away
Jon Cluck
@cluckj
May 24 2018 15:45
haha
garykidd
@garykidd
May 24 2018 15:45
one lead at a time!!!
Jon Cluck
@cluckj
May 24 2018 15:46
non-battery-hacker-supreme folks (meeee) need the "just plug it in" version :laughing:
garykidd
@garykidd
May 24 2018 15:46
one time I had a nicad c cell tab short out on the case and it was ferocious----don't want to f up with Lithium
gotchya
Jon Cluck
@cluckj
May 24 2018 15:47
yes, I shorted out my https://www.adafruit.com/product/354 and don't want to mess with batteries anymore
garykidd
@garykidd
May 24 2018 15:48
but does look like there are some higher capacities out there that could help in lieu of/ while efficiencies develop. Kinda strange that we're going backwards compared to efficiency already inherent in the explorer setup---but we don't control the world do we?
Jon Cluck
@cluckj
May 24 2018 15:49
nope, it's a shame that intel stopped making the edison
re-platforming openaps is really really really time consuming, and hopefully the pervasiveness and structural/community/manufacturing support of the pi will not disappear
Jon Cluck
@cluckj
May 24 2018 16:02
(it doesn't look like it will, which is part of the reason why the pi was picked)
garykidd
@garykidd
May 24 2018 17:32
yup good call....and also economical
fidoman
@efidoman
May 24 2018 17:57
here's the Qi pad I bought and works with my rpi zero hat setup
Jon Cluck
@cluckj
May 24 2018 17:59
thanks again! I should save that link...
Samuchco
@Samuchco
May 24 2018 21:43
@efidoman can you tell me where you bought your rip zero? and what you included in it ( usb and OTG ports etc.) or did it come as is
fidoman
@efidoman
May 24 2018 21:54
I got it from here
it comes with all you need really as long as you have micro usb charger cable
Samuchco
@Samuchco
May 24 2018 22:07
@efidoman so I idon'thave to include the 1 x USB Mini Hub with Power Switch - OTG Micro-USB ($4.95)
Also include 1 x Tiny OTG Adapter - USB Micro to USB ($2.95)
fidoman
@efidoman
May 24 2018 22:16
those could be good / inexpensive additions but not required if you have a micro usb phone charger and cable
Jon Cluck
@cluckj
May 24 2018 22:59
yep. you need a micro SD card too, don't forget!
Samuchco
@Samuchco
May 24 2018 23:32
@cluckj @efidoman This is the picture of what I ordered. I'm assuming that it comes with all the things in the picture .Am I correct?
Rspi Zero WH.tiff
or do you need to order each USB, SD Card Etc separately
