OSCR - Open Source CPAP Reviewer

RE: OSCR - Open Source CPAP Reviewer
A new bug found. I started to sleep 01:10 and woke up 3:30. And then I imported data to my computer from sd-card. Then on morning I slept more. About 1 - 2 hours. And again I tried to import data to my computer from sd-card. But Sleepyhead said that there is already data and didn't import the new data to computer. So, I can't see how the morning sleep has gone.

You can purge the data for that date and then import again. This is not a bug, it's a feature to prevent overwriting data.

Am back with more!  (Uh-oh.)  Here's a name suggestion that's really corny.  Talk about your retconned acronyms ...

CPAP Helper And Respiration Tracking Software

At the moment, a common piece of advice on AB is "Post your Sleepyhead charts."  Well, after this name change, that would become "Post your CHARTS charts."

(Yeah, I agree, it's terrible.  I give it two stars out of five.)

Making it slightly better is left as an exercise for the reader:  For instance, let's make it "CHARTER", because charting is what the program does, so we need to replace "Software" with "E<something> R<something>".

CPAP Helper And Respiration Tracking E??? R???

By the way, be sure to let us know when the name decision has been made, so we can all stop trying to come up with clever acronyms.

Chief - its time to lower the cone of silence.

(Now under the cone - Since the program supplies so much more than apnea data and keeping with the KISS principle I think the name should start with Sleep but not babyish like sleepyhead. Perhaps SleepTracker, or something along those lines.)

Carry on...........

Except the program doesn't track "sleep." 

I wish it could, but that's a false premise.

Yes, and the data on the SD card are often called "sleep data", which seems slightly wrong but again it's one of those cases of "You know what I mean."  (As I remember my sleep study, the techs who were monitoring that didn't get much sleep data from me.  They got hours of insomnia data. OBTW, yeah, I know that those PSG instruments are capable of tracking sleep, thanks to the EEG.)

As long as we're on the subject of misnomers, the computer software doesn't record data.  The machine (or its firmware) records.  The software reports, displays, summarizes, reduces, charts, plots, and/or graphs data.  A person who is using the software reviews, evaluates, analyzes, interprets, draws inferences & conclusions ...

If you want to use "visualize", it seems to me that either the program or the person (or both) could be said to do that.  The program turns numbers into graphics.

The naming is trickier than it looks, ain't it?

That's why silly names can actually be preferable sometimes.  Here's my latest suggestion:

A Respiration Tracker, Yow!!

(Yes, that's a Zippy reference.  Often, "Yow!!" will be followed by "Am I having FUN yet??")

So instead of "Post your Sleepyhead charts", we'd have "Post your ARTY charts." (Not your artichoke hearts.)  And the program is arty: it draws.

Speaking of silliness, I've decided that "CHARTER" would be:

CPAP Helper And Respiration Tracking Extravaganza Revisited

Sleepyhead is the first extravaganza; the renamed (and eventually updated) program will be that extravaganza revisited.

The Greek breath is ἀναπνέω, whose transliteration sounds like "Anapneo." this Harry Potter lexicon "Anapneo" is the enchantment of a spell that clears the target's breathing airways if blocked.

I propose that AnapneaGraph

or just "Anapnea" Analysis Apnea.

But it makes the point and would sell with doctors.  To me it sounds more sophisticated.  All we do here is related to getting better sleep so.....but I get your point entirely.

Taking a cue from the late artist formerly known as Prince (TLAFKAP), we could call it

The Application Formerly Known As Sleepyhead (TAFKAS)

... or for those who like MarketingDroidCaps®, it could be

The Application Formerly Known As SleepyHead (TAFKASH)

ObLeftAsAnExerciseForTheReader: the creation of a rune (or dingbat) to go along with that.
