Know your not the most technical person. But you can update the smartpix easily in Vista (no need to upgrade to windows 7)... and it works in both ...(I like Windows 7 though)... also supposedly the new 360 will work properly in Vista now as well.. (and you can use the Smartpix instead of the blue LED/infared cable that used to come with 360).. I think even the improvement of 360 working in vista is a good thing.

The summary version, download the file for the smartpix, and follow the instructions (theres a PDF)... I *think* you have to download the file, open it, and then copy ONE file you unpacked onto the main directory on the Smartpix.. (right click the proper file, select copy then drag it onto the smartpix icon/drive icon for the smartpix... The software does look a little nicer...

You know ill help you as much as i can.. (Windows 7 is really nice but depending on how old your PC is, its not necessarily worth it to upgrade it.. )

Hi Marie B
Thanks for the welcome - and the 'compass'.
I can't believe how much information is out here!
And it's the best kind: from the people all over the world having similar experiences, and their willingness to share it freely. Keep in touch.

Sitting on the recliner,feet up doing some homework. I need 30 hours of ceu's to renew my license by April. Only have 16 so far. Usually get it done at work but am out now 6 weeks and not cleared to go back till the end of Feb. So gotta work on it at home. Hate the TEDS but they do help. Stay warm.

Sounds like you really like the desitronic(: Unfortunately, I can only choose between the Animas, OmniPod, and Mini Med. My doctor and the hospital specializes in those. I added samsmom as my friend. Thank you so much.

I bet he is proud to have it there!

I guess he had better get the ice and snow off if you guys are getting more. You don't want your roof to colapse like those I saw on TV after the last snow did to them!

I have all the Superbowl stuff already cuz Pete took me out. Just mad cuz my son & Granddaughter are supposed to come up from Willow Grove to visit tomorrow. = ( Have not seen them since Christmas between my hospitalizations, the bad weather and they had a stomach flu and didn't want to bring it here.

I just added myself to the teen group. Everything is getting a little easier everyday. Everything used to seem so complicated, but it is all getting simpler. I bet its going to change once I get a pump. Do you have any recommendations for a pump? I have my first pump class on the 25 of Feb.

Expecting more nasty weather this weekend. Was hoping it would bypass us cuz my son Kevin and granddaughter Samantha are supposed to visit. Haven't seen them for over a month. Miss my little cutie. Hope Phil was right. Need to see an early spring.
