i agree completely on the ymmv thing.  while most of the time i'll change
the infusion set on my paradigm (and me) when the reservoir runs out,
sometimes i'll leave the set in longer.  i try not to do that too much since
the site will not heal as well the longer i leave it in.  but yeah, it's
completely ymmv, as well as playing it by ear.
