I'm excited and I don't know why I didn't think of this before. Those of us who have Animas pumps -- IR1000 on, will fully acknowledge that using EzManager to input favorites sucks. Especially if you have a lot of entries.
I get my food from a service in Dallas called Diet Gourmet. Low fat, low salt, good flavored food and a no brainer. They usually come with nutrional information on it but they just changed the menu. Plus I don't get ALL the values in the log, which is kind of a bad thing right now since I'm on a medically supervised diet.
Well, I got my replacement pump today, downloaded everything off the old and uploaded and thought, gee it would be nice to have my Diet Gourmet food in the database.
I tried individual entries made me nuts. As always. I kept typing things in wrong. Well, I finally got the bright idea of looking at a backup file. GUESS WHAT! Nice and simple XML file.
So I reformatted the Diet Gourmet excel sheets to match the order of the XML file, did a ton of cut and pasting, and I currently have not ONE week, but TWO weeks of Diet Gourmet meals in my pump.
Did find a nice little bug. Oh, well. They have done a good job of programming around it.
And have you guessed that this little episode did "sell" the Ping for me. Oh, I am sure my area rep had my account flagged, but they did answer the phone fast and did get me taken care of.
It's funny but I went over a year (have to look at the archives to know for sure) and had the same pump. Was really concerned about having to get it replaced, etc. Now, since a few recalls and a lot of little glitches, I'm cool with it. Have it delivered at school. Keep the old one to make sure I've got the settings and it's what I want. Drop the old one of at the DHL Headquarters down the road, and I'm good to go.
