RE: OSCAR - Open Source CPAP Analysis Reporter
I'm seeing a lot of progress & a great spirit of cooperation in the AST group as they work to release OSCAR.

There are currently about 40 members in that group, and if what's happened so far is any indication, future OSCAR releases will be a great success.

From what I can tell, the AST members have "checked their egos at the door" and truly want to help fellow sleep apnea patients around the world.

I think it was Harry S. Truman who said, "It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit."

I'd like to give my sincerest thanks to Mark Watkins for his help to bring to us Sleepyhead.

Also, a big thank you to the crew that's creating OSCAR.

A Coffee as toast to ya...

I'm not a doctor in real or fictional life. My posts include opinions based upon user experience regarding CPAP therapy and should not be considered medically professional direction or advice. Even a 1,000 mile trip requires a good first step. My recommended first steps include getting good walking shoes, 1 great cup of coffee, and a good GPS.

The AST group is working on it right now and hopes to have OSCAR 1.0.0 officially released sometime in March.

When they say it's ready for release, there will be an announcement here in the forums and we'll also have a link to the OSCAR download page at the top of every forum page, similar to the one that's currently there for SleepyHead.

I see what you did there.

So glad to see new life to this cause! My first CPAP arrives on Thursday and was a little sad to see such a great tool in danger of abandonment.

I've preemptively marked myself as an OSCAR user in support. I am a user experience designer and make user-friendly software by day. Happy to pitch in if you ever need UI design help for a new feature. Though I imagine the priorities right now are supporting more machines.

Cheers!

There are some right idiots around that hide behind the Internet to abuse others!
I'm another reviled "abuser" of Mark Watkins.

I put hundreds, if not thousands of hours into 0.98 and 1.0, (that's why I'm on the credits page... Smile ).

Then towards the end of 1.0 development, I did a horrible thing (to hear Mr Watkins tell it), I'd been trying to get him to change some of the things that routinely confuse people, (like using resmed leak warnings on respironics machines)  And he'd been blowing me off.

 In retrospect I see now that he'd been acting more and more paranoid, ranting about how people were out to get him, and I was spending more and more time trying to talk him back from the edge.

Then I made a fatal mistake, I said:

"Why don't you talk to pugsy and RobySue about the things they see that confuse people?"

And, BAM, I was an enemy, and kicked out of the project. 

That is exactly the kind of "abuse" people have heaped on Mr Watkins.

The final straw that lead to the latest breakdown was people *talking* about an idea to help him, and you, as a CPAP user.

Mr. Watkins has never cared about you, the user, sleepyhead has always been something to stoke his ego (and make money off of).  

Any benefit to CPAP users is purely a fortunate side effect..

The very "abusers" are now working to create software to help YOU, the people who need to see their data, in order to better YOUR treatment, not to stoke their egos.

Support them.

You got credit? not so much for me. I brought the team together that supported advance Philips BiPAP machines, the Devilbiss and almost got the Somnibalance into the 1.1.0 release.  Many calculation corrections and the introduction screen no longer lectures you about how "horrible" your results are. I'm not accredited.

Yeah, take a look at the 'help/about' page on 1.0:

Special thanks to Pugsy and Robysue from [that other place] for their help with documentation and tutorials, as well as everyone who helped out by testing and sharing their CPAP data.
It has been a singular effort on his part, hasn't it?  Dielaughing

Bummer that he shafted you even more.
