I'd figured it got to the point where a week at a time was more appropriate.

Unfortunately, I'm apparently bad at math and this is eight days worth.

I'm seeing that leaks are becoming an issue; I'm also wondering how well I'm sleeping. I'll validate my straps tonight before bed.

I'm to mail in the SD Card in a week and change for their review (I'll have to purchase a spare, I assume they'll send another - or perhaps initial compliance is all they'll care about). Around that time I'll call and ask for a refresher on who I go to for different masks, etc.

The leaks are from your mouth opening as shown by the flat-topped leak graph. You are still getting therapy, but you may need to consider a different interface.

You have stayed very consistent with regard to events. These results on fixed pressure have been improved over the variable pressure you originally had, but there is room for improvement. You may want to drop pressure back a half cm or so (7.0 cm) and see if that is more comfortable. Overall, your events are more central than obstructive, so if you want to try a lower fixed pressure and see if that improves CA as well as leaks, that seems like something worth trying.
