Hello, Felix,

 Once again, thank you for your lengthy and well-reasoned reply. I can assure
you, however, on this particular point, I believe you are nistaken. Whenever my
BG is above target, the square wave bolus option disappears, whether I am doing
a correction or not.

 OK, I am truly confused now. Why would you eat the other 185 in the bag?? Do
you want the software to be able to cover for you for being confused?

 I guess my point is: I don't want it to be so simple to do a normal bolus when
my BG is below target. Someone here already posted how they wound up in the
hospital because of this 'feature', and I don't want it to be me.

Once again, Thanks a bunch,
