RE: [IP] Minimed static problems



Len, don't let my little error in math overshadow the fact that there are
many more pumps manufactured by Minimed than other pump manufacturers.  Me
and several other people on this forum are actually getting pretty tired of
being slammed for owning a Minimed pump.  I think it is unfair, unnecessary
and flat rude.  So if Minimed sells 80 of every 100 pumps in the US market
share would you not think that any problems with that product would be
magnified just based on the pure numbers?

If the only reason this forum is here is to simply slam certain owners of
particular insulin pumps, and ask the group about pump therapy for animals,
then this is indeed a sad forum.

It's nice to know Len that your truly without fault.

Mark

Wrong (based on what ive been taught) .. that would be 80 TIMES..... 80% is
80 out of every 100 sold..
or (8 out of 10) or (4 out of 5).....

hmmmmm.... hope your a little more careful, when doing a extended bolus
calculation....
