First up, a big thank you to the Mods here for graciously allowing me the chance and the proper place for this thread to answer your questions..
(I'll be good I promise :)
A little disclaimer would be appropriate:
I will personally byte anyone who spoils this opportunity by mentioning anything to do with self treatment. Also, neither I nor the mods here would like to see this used this as a support forum for SleepyHead - there is already an appropriate place for that at the projects homepage.
I will certainly do my best to help you were possible, but more in a role of another software user who is afflicted with Sleep Apnea. I will also be able to answer technical questions you may have and clarify how things work. But please report any bugs and major problems to the support site, not here.. Also, I will not be posting new releases notes in this thread. (new code has been added to the program to let you know in future when an update is available)
I'm sure that brewing the occasional idea here won't hurt. I would very much like to give you guys & girls of this forum the opportunity to have input into the making of this software. There is already a feature request area on the projects homepage if you would like to make a formal request.
Now that's over with...
@oldwoolstore.. Support for Intellipap machines is currently being researched. I've requested some information from the DeVilbiss to see if I can speed up development.. If this doesn't materialize, it will require some good ol' fashion hacking and guess work.
@SleepyToo. Your quite correct.. Data format changes are a colossal pain.. It is an unfortunate part of the software development process. It's only recently parts have been put in place to minimize this. A new caching rebuilding system is still under way to help avoid this is future (as well as speed up the import process.) These changes will all be in place before the v0.9 beta test series is released. Print support is being planned too.. As for timeline.. well, it's free software.. I have decided I want to aim for a beta by the end of this year.. This will highly depend on my free time and health until then of course..
And finally, may I finish with few "public service announcements" which I feel are very important:
I would like to recommend ResMed S9 + software users (including ResScan users too!) regularly back up their SD card, as the S9 automatically deletes high resolution data older than 7 days, the rest of the graph data older than 30 days, and all the event data older than 365 days. SleepyHead allows you to import from a backup folder on your hard-drive, provided you keep the same folder structure as your SD card.
An important warning for Mac users: Please lock your SD cards plastic read/write tab before putting it into your Mac. Sleepyhead will not damage your SD card, as it is read only, but Mac OSX has been known to eat them, causing data corruption.. Remember to unlock after your done (your CPAP machine should nag you if you forget.. it would be wise to test this before going to sleep with your card locked though)
And one more: This is technically alpha software.. Although it's fairly advanced and quite usable, but it not ready for mass testing or prime time.. If your not comfortable using software that may break/crash occasionally, it would be best to wait at least for the beta..
Thank you again to the mods.. If anything here is out of order, please let me know :)
