GregLawson,

I think you have established that and have already made some helpful posts that improved the system for the benefit of all users.

We all have quirks, perhaps I was exposing some of my own. No harm, no foul.

cheers,

Agreed, and oftimes when "normal people" listen to "tech refugees" interacting with one another, it has a resulting effect upon them akin to sitting through an 8-hour recital of Vogon poetry (without earplugs). But, we who cause such reactions quietly chuckle under our breath, having quenched our thirst to connect with those of like mind, believing that the satisfaction we obtain is somehow worth irritating 99% of the populace. Bigwink Too-funny

Other than that little bit of quirkiness, tech refugees are pretty nice people, once you get to know them.

... and since this thread has gone quite off-topic from specific CPAP/OSA related issues, It's probably appropriate for me to move it into the Off-Topic forum. Feel free to keep the conversation going. Coffee

The "normals" laughed at me in school.
Then they had to work for me after they got out. SHa_biggrin5
Then I retired young and went sailing in warm sunny places while they are still working. SHa_biggrin5SHa_biggrin5

I use my PAP machine nightly and I feel great!
