Well, I'm a brand-new pumper -- and I suspect the rates will change as
my body settles in, but at the moment, I have .5 for 2 AM to 9 AM, .2
for 9 AM to 2 PM, and .3 for 2 PM to 2 AM.

Yeah, it's so little it doesn't seem worth it, BUT it obviously makes a
difference for me!!!!  I think the dawn one will go up a bit, because my
fasting  BGs are creeping up, and I might have the afternoon one go up,
too -- dunno yet. But I think the .2 for the late morning is just right,
so even when it finally settles down, I will have more than a .3u/hour

YMMV, of course!
