Re: [IP] Software -- Attn: GEEKS



I'm interested in helping with the programming as well. I have lots of
experience in Vicual C++ with MFC on a Windows platform. I have played
around a little bit with Palm programming also. Additionally, I have
purchased several commercial diabetes products which I have used - and hence
a bunch of opinions about user interfaces...
