The device for measuring blood sugar is from an apparently clued-in outfit who provide a simple and effective device. They also provide lots of interesting geek tools for managing your body’s performance stats, including a customized Handspring device, a web interface for storing info, and a PC interface cable. For the last of these they’ve released the data format so that you can just buy the cable and roll your own software if you want. I applaud this!
The only real negative from today’s experience was the psychological part of the class, which was so dumb as to be offensive. Lots of office-lady humor, humiliating simplification and patronizing garbage. I bit my tongue a lot, reminding myself that I didn’t have to buy into the dreadful Kewpie-doll mentality as long as I paid attention to the science stuff and the good advice and the useful procedures for avoiding doom.
Plus I tricked myself into buying a new Palm device. ::go to wait by mailbox::
