>#1 Do you Like your pump?
For this D user, pumping is the closest thing to not being diabetic. I have
added energy to accomplish what I used to put off. And I could be totally
wrong, or delusional, or whatever, but with my diabetes "under control" for
the first time I think I'll die from something other than diabetes.

Error 10 signifies 295 units have been metered out. Alarm 1 sounds 20 units
later and stops the pump. But the most significant empty cartridge alarm is
error 4 "occlusion". At that point it's really empty. Until then the pump
will keep pumping (even after error 1), provided the electronics are reset.
>Secondly to all pumpers, do you wait until your cartridge is totally empty

I use the old cartridge until the error message for occlusion. Anticipating
that I sometimes carry a fresh cartridge. I only carry multiple fresh
cartridges when I'm traveling.
