[Treatment] May be Too Late for Me Too
RE: May be Too Late for Me Too
Programming humor accepted (even though I don't get it).

I do have questions related to my relatively new installation (mid-February 2019) of my FlashAir chip:

I just received the following email message from ResMed:
"The serial number of the machine you had on file with myAir previously had a relationship with a provider. That provider has removed this machine from your account so it has also been removed from your myAir account.

To continue using myAir, please sign in @ xxxx.  You will be prompted to provide the new serial and device number of the machine you are currently using. The serial and device numbers can be found on the back of your machine."

Can my new FlashAir chip affect my radio(?) connection with my medical provider?  Do they use Wi-Fi to communicate with my Resmed CPAP machine?  I've been using the same CPAP machine since 2016.

Could the new FlashAir chip have somehow started blocking communication with my medical (sleep) provider?  I didn't think the two communication methods (FlashAir Wi-Fi) and ResMed (whatever they use) were related.

I provided MyAir with the S/N, etc., information they requested and I have contacted my provider (MyChart) requesting an explanation of why they removed my machine from their system.  I have not received any replies / explanations yet as to what has happened -- probably too soon.

Thanks!

Sorry, I tried to remove the URL by deleting it and typing "xxxx" but your system posted it anyway.  I edited it to remove the URL and I think I succeeded.

No, the FlashAir doesn't have anything to do with MyAir. Your DME was discontinuing their affiliation with your CPAP. It was probably registered through them to your MyAir account. . . No Biggie!

Mr. Nape:
I know I should let this go (as you requested), however, your statement "Forth programing in you did?" has been bugging me all day.  It won't go away -- you said it was some kind of programming humor which I cannot grasp.

I have searched my mind regarding the programming languages I am familiar with: Fortran, C/C++, Microsoft GWBasic, Microsoft Assembler and SQL and I cannot relate that statement to any programming code in any of those programming languages.

I wish you would explain to me what I, in my obvious naiveté, am missing regarding your meaning with this statement...?  Otherwise this will probably bug me for days and days (or longer).

Thank you (for your help getting my FlashAir functioning properly).  So far it seems to be working OK.

Forth is/was a programming language that is written "reverse polish notation", somewhat like how Yoda spoke in Star Wars.  An example would be like adding 2+2, would be written as, 2 2 + .  I believe it is based on how the compiler reads the code. Much like a C compiler reads from left to right whereas, a Pascal compiler reads right to left. When I saw your computer history, I assumed that you were probably exposed to that language.

Why the Hewlett Packard calculator was only popular with super-nerds. Not to mention its cost!

RE: May be Too Late for Me Too
Another successful FlashAir data transfer for last 'night'!  I guess the problem has been resolved -- at least I hope that is the case.

I heard about 'reverse polish notation' and even tried to understand it back in the day (now over 25 years ago).  For about 7 1/2 years I programmed mostly in FORTRAN on a HP-1000 (dinosaur even in those days) and then moved on to a Unix platform -- still FORTRAN, however.  I got so I could write FORTRAN code as fast, or faster, than I could write a Microsoft Word documents.  Then I got laid off (they went after anybody over 55 and I was 56 at the time).  Since then I programmed on my p.c.s as a hobby but I never got involved in 'reverse polish' coding.  I stuck with Microsoft's GWBasic and Assembly language (mostly 8 bit but a little 16 bit) and continued with C/C++ (Borland's versions).  I gradually burned out and now I just use my computer for news, online purchases, and your Apnea Forum.  I still have my old 1994 vintage Borland C/C++ compiler on my computer which I (very) occasionally use for a grocery shopping program I wrote (C/C++ with a dab of assembly language) which allows my wife to create grocery lists for me (she is pretty much wheelchair bound and uses her computer quite a lot).

I have never been interested in 'reverse polish' programming as my mind doesn't seem to work that way.  My sister had an H.P. calculator set up with 'reverse polish' logic and I could never figure it out.  I'm not sure that she did either but she had this thing about impressing people.  I got her calculator when she died in 2009 but its battery was gone and I never did figure it out.  My old T.I. programmable calculators worked just fine for me at that time.

Anyway, thank you for all your help getting the FlashAir system to work again.
