RE: [IP] Sorry, The Animas Experiment is Over

Is it THAT obvious?? LOL Don't need to 'hard sell' the Animas, kind of sells
itself, once you see the positive and negative of all the pumps.
You know, you are the first one (I believe) that has really given a list of
positive virtues of the Paradigm, but another you left off. The Paradigm is

 Hey Harry,

I'm shocked to hear that you're dissatisfied with the Animus pump. There are
a couple of people here who could perhaps help you figure out a way to deal
with some of the IR1000 quirks.

Though I don't use the IR1000, I found that it was a good pump and would
meet my basic pumping needs. However, during my researching phase prior to
going live with a pump, I discovered that the Paradigm pump both met and
exceeded my needs in a much more refined and easier-to-use way. I love the
fact that:

1) it's waterproof; has both Dual and Square Wave extended bolus features
for up to eight hours

2) it has a vibrate or audio mode (either of which can be turned off, I

3) it has a larger view screen backlight

4) the ESCAPE button allows you to immediately exit a menu and return to the
previous if you make a mistake (why don't all pumps have this?)

5) fewer key presses allow you to accomplish whatever you're trying to do,

6) no microscopic-sized batteries to fumble with, especially if you tend to
fat-finger things

7) it comes packaged with a fantastic workbook, user-guide, and video - any
of which will give you all the info you need to quickly get pumping and
enjoying all the Paradigm features

I could go on, but I shouldn't. I'm starting to sound like Mike S. pulling
one of his hard sells for the Animas (just ribbing you, Mike!)

Maybe I missed an earlier post, but is there a reason that you're not
looking into the Paradigm? If so, disregard this message. I'm not familiar
with the Disetronic pumps so I can't comment on them. Most of all, best of
luck with your choice of pump.
