News archive2016-08-18: SiDiary and Avira
Lately we received some support requests, that when trying to read out meters, users receive error messages and what they can do about it.We analyzed the problem and found out, that the tool 'Avira Antivirus', which is preferred by many users, is very often the reason. Avira Antivirus prevents, that a configuration file, which is strongly needed for proper operation ability, can be written by SiDiary (in a folder, which is created from and must be writable for SiDiary).
We already reported this to the producers of Avira, but so far there was no change made by Avira.To solve this matter, there are two different ways:
Either you click on the 5. button from the left in the SiDiary toolbar (Download blood glucose meter/insulin pump) several times. With each new attempt there will be written more of the file, until it's completed after 3 or 4 attempts - then it will show no more error messages.
Or you can add the folder, where SiDiary stores this and other configuration and data files, to the exceptions of the antivirus program. We described the how to in an illustrated manual on this page:
2016-08-09: Libre and mysugr
With today's update the direct import from Abbott Freestyle Libre in SiDiary is rounded. With the original Libre software you can add your own notes, which are then transmitted to the reader. So you can add these short texts after a scanned reading. With the update to version 1.6.1306 SiDiary reads these self-defined notes and adds them to the logbook as remarks.
Another cool new feature is aimed at users who use on their smartphone or tablet the software 'mysugr'. With the current version of SiDiary now you can also import the export files, which you can send to yourself from mysugr as a CSV file via email.details
2016-05-19: SiDiary 6.1 available
SiDiary 6.1 is now available for all users as a free update!
With this new version we have not only introduced a new, brighter layout, but also a significant improvement of touch operations on tablet PCs with Windows operating system.
Another cool feature is the integration of CGMS- and Libre data. You can now select in the detail logbook, whether you like to see the blood glucose levels as a table like in the previous version or the curve with the CGMS- or Libre data for that day. This makes it much easier to complete the logbook and add useful details for your diabetes team.
(Of course, you can print your data also included with this new graph)
Another highlight for users of Freestyle Libre from Abbott: the data can be read with version 6.1 directly from the Libre reader into SiDiary, so that it is no longer necessary to export them first from the Libre software.

Discussions about this beta release are also going on at the board. Thanks a lot to all testers who have supported me with informations and test efforts! :-) details
2004-10-13 Insulin & pill types and nutrition lists
I would like to ask you for help: SiDiary comes fully translated in your preferred language but the lists of insulins and pills are still missing in your language. :( This isn't really a problem because you can add any type of insulin or pill with just a few clicks. But if someone could provide a list of insulin & pill types (long acting and rapid acting insulins) for his language or country I would greatly appreciate emails with those lists :-) Additionally the new version of SiDiary will contain a lookup for nutritions so that you can search for your carbs, fat etc. But right now I've got only free databases for Germany and the USDA database. So if anyone can provide informations about free nutrition databases for other countries...please email me ;-) details
2004-10-09 Server down...
The web server was down for some hours today. My provider had to work on his servers this weekend but from tomorrow, Sunday, everything should work fine again - the server should even perform better! :-) details
2004-10-07 Something's going on...
I'm currently building a major update to version 4.0.x which will have really great new features! Unfortunately I cannot say when it will be released exactly so it's always a good idea to subscribe for the update-info and if you're interested in details for this brandnew version, you should also register for the forum and look at the member-only area for all details which have been finished so far! :-) details
2004-09-15 Language update for Greek

2004-08-17 Minor update at the download section
I've uploaded a minor update which fixes a problem with the default time-slices. They weren't saved properly on the PPC version - so this update is probably interesting for the new users. Therefor I didn't send out an update-info email. Please view the change-log for all changes. details
The most recent PPC-Version shows a BE-Button. When you click on it, it displays a message that you have to download the nutrition data from the web. Since I haven't completed this functionality, you can't find the nutrition data in the download section so far... details

2004-07-23 The next update is coming soon
The next update is probably coming at the end of next week: Faster application start and a better overall performance for saving values and creating statistics (see also forum thread). details
2004-06-24 Another new translation started...
Good news for the russian users: Konstantin (Kostya) Zakharov from Moscow has started with the russian translation of SiDiary. It was a little bit tricky to make the VB-application display unicode characters like cyrillic but now this works fine. Anyone else for i.e. Asian translations? ;-) details

The missing terms in the french translation are now completed. The language-file is already included with the downloadables. Thanks a lot to Ulrike Schleese! details

2004-05-24 Italian translation completed
Claudio Biotti has completed the Italian translation of the GUI. So we can build a big language-update with Potuguese, Italian and Swedish. Unfortunately this release has to wait for 2-3 weeks because I haven't got much time these days for building a new update... :-| details
2004-05-19 Portuguese version is ready
Actually I would announce that Rodrigo Thomaz from Niterói, Brasil has joined the translator team but because of his incredible performance on translating the GUI he was ready before I could tell you about that he will start with... details
2004-05-14 Hotfix 3.0.173
I've put a hotfix (Version 3.0.173) to the download section. In this release a hard bug in the PPC-version is fixed, especially for new users: Under certain circumstances the application crashed without any message and it couldn't be started again - even a re-install could not solve this problem. If you have encountered those trouble, please soft reset your PPC and install the current release 173! Please find more details at the FAQ page! For the other users who are already using SiDiary without any problems there are only few changes which you can find in the change log. details
2004-05-05 Italian translation
Bad news, good news regarding the italian translation: Markus Schwind had to resign his position as Italian translator. But fortunately Claudio Biotti from Milano is joining us to complete the translation. Thanks a lot to Markus for the already done work and to Claudio for his future efforts! details
2004-04-30 Version 3.0 released
The new version is waiting for you in the download section. From the version number you can see that it's a major update which contains i.e. the pumper functionalities. Additionally all statistic graphs can be printed with your logs (it works just with MsWinword!) an many more... Have fun and I hope that the server has enough horsepower... ;-) Thanks a lot to all pumper beta-testers, which helped to build a stable version! details
2004-04-22 Swedish translation & new release will come soon
Great news for the swedish visitors and SiDiary users: Pasi Grönberg wants to help building a swedish SiDiary version. Thanks in advance! (It will take some time but the progress will be reported at the language support section!). Additionally the new version can be released very soon, since the pumper beta test is pretty close to the end and the version was already sent to the translators. It will not only include the new pumper functionalites but also great new enhancements for all users! :-)) details
2004-04-14 English user's manual
With great help from Tom Foster, UK, the English manual is now in a much better condition! ;-) He has reviewed and corrected all of my disastrous translations so it should be now much more convinient to read it. Thanks a lot, Tom! details
2004-04-10 Merry easter...
...to all visitors! :-) details
2004-04-02 Palm & SiDiary
A short note for Palm users: Andi Heitzer has built a converter tool to use his diabetes data tracked with GlucoPilot on a Palm device with SiDiary on his windows desktop computer. I will add more detailed information on the web very soon but if you're interested in this converter (and reading German pages isn't a problem for you), you can read more infos on Andi's Homepage (point to diabetes in the navigation frame). Andi is providing this tool for free also! details
2004-03-28 New release in download section & new board
A new version is waiting for you in the download section. Main feature is the included french translation, some of you were waiting for. Thanks a lot to Ulrike Schleese! Additionally there are a few smaller adjustments for the statistics. Read details here. The beta-test for diabetics with pumps has started this weekend so we can expect a main update in the next two or three weeks! :-)) One new main section for this web was opened now: The board! With kind help from diabetesinfo.de we have now a board for discussions about SiDiary! I hope this helps for discussions, questions etc. And for sure I will be there also! ;-) details
2004-03-24 Want to become a beta tester for pumpers
I've finished a beta version with the new functionalties for diabetics with pumps. If you want to help me with testing this functionalities, just send me an email. I have to use "beta testers" for this functionality because I will not use it...because I've got no pump ;-) If there will be more than 10 interested "pumpers" for this beta test, the selection will be done by "first-come-first-serve" :-) I would like to start the beta test this weekend... details
2004-03-19 The 10.000th visitor
Probably today there will be the 10.000th visitor of this site. With a real/official start date on 01/19/2004 that isn't bad for the beginning?! ;-) If you are the 10.000th visitor, could you please make a screenshot with the web counter and send it to me by email?! :-) details
2004-03-15 Next release (V2.7.103)
The new release is waiting in the download section for danish and czech users! The danish translators Michael Rasmussen and Helmut Rielke from diakids.dk have finished the whole work on just one weekend. Additionally Patrik Krizan has completed the czech version last week. I didn't send an update-warning info because there are no new functionalities in this version beside of the two new languages for the GUI. details
2004-03-13 Danish is coming...
Good news for all danes: Michael Rasmussen & Helmut Rielke have started with the danish translation on this weekend! :-) details
2004-03-08 New release in download section
Now you can find the new release in the download section. The most important thing is the spanish translation which is now included! There are several corrections and optimizations and also the pie-chart code is brandnew (all details are included within the downloadable zip-files). Additionally I had worked on the web as you can see from the previous news-item and on the right navigation bar. Good luck and have fun with the new version, Alf. details
2004-03-06 Broken Web...
Sorry to all visitors from yesterday! The redirect did not work properly so that a broken page was displayed to all visitors which have started on www.sidiary.org. Now it should look much better... details
2004-03-01 Less news...but soon...
Today there's just less to tell from SiDiary's last weekend: I could fix a few cosmetic things which are not that important that they should be put on the web as a new release. I've worked on several language issues and even the improvements for the pump users are finished in my head so I can soon start the dev... Another item: Under specific circumstances it could be possible that the pie-chart shows incorrect sectors. It is drawn with a free code-snippet, which was taken from a magazine. I've encountered these things 2 weeks ago and from time to time I get emails from you also finding this bug. It took some time to analyze what is going on in this code and it's clear now but it needs some time for correction - BUT this bug is already known and I'm working on it - If you encounter this phenomenon: You can always trust the displayed percentage values for low, target, high and x-high values! details
2004-02-25 Small Fix on statistic graphs e.g. am/pm-handling
Fix 2.5.92 is waiting for you in the download section. There was a "cosmetic" bug with the line graph, if you've saved bg level values with times 12:XXp. In this special case the graph had shown some suspicious intersections. Additionally you can find a recently started hardware compatibility list since I was asked from time to time on which devices SiDiary is running properly. I hope that you could help me with this question by a short confirmation of your used hardware?! Thanks a lot! details
2004-02-23 Small hotfix V2.5.91 & Dutch translation up ...
Affected: PPC with setting Type2 only: The labels for Basal/bolus were mixed up in the BG-Overview sheet and Henk has completed the dutch translation :-) details
2004-02-22 A lot of cool new things...
Now you can download the next bigger release (V2.5.90) from the download-section. The downloadable zip-files contain a complete update-list, here are some highlights: Support for type/type2 (insulin and pills), up to 4 different insulins or pills, add new insulins and pills directly in program, OTUS csv-import, several improvements of statistics, resizable window for graphs, 2 further translations (slovak & croatian) etc. Dutch translation isn't 100% but Henk is already working on that! details
2004-02-12 PPC-Hotfix V2.2.67
I've fixed a bad bug with the referred version (PPC only!): If you've decided to let SiDiary update the column header time this update was just visible on the screen but not saved. Changed times in the column header were only be saved, if they were edited manually. Thanks to Christian Mück for reporting this bug! Sorry for that, I've lost several time values too. :-( Win32bit version was not concerned! details
2004-02-09 Version 2.2.66 with new statistics and graphs...
The new PC and PPC versions can now be downloaded. You'll get new statistic coeffecients, one new graphical view and a Diabass interface. Additionally the improved sync functionality is included which was announced for yesterday. Great news for the durch users, translation is completed! Thanks a lot to Henk Heijligers! :-) details
2004-02-06 Advance notice: Synchronization & Diabass
I've worked on several improvements on data sync issues between Win32- and WinCE-application (performance, avoidance of CE-restart etc.). If these changes will come through test efforts of this weekend I will release it likely on Monday. Also the Diabass interface is completed and has been given to Oliver Ebert for approval. :-) details
2004-02-05 New version 2.1.56 released.
You can now get version 2.1.56 from the download section with several improvements and bugfixes for the U.S. users. (Bolus calculation, carb ratios, am/pm handling etc.) . Please go to coming soon section to get a complete list with all modifications. details
2004-01-26 Version2.0 available!
Now you can download last weekend's results... Some bigger issues on the application's architecture are invisble for you but they are still there.Version 2.0 is the result including new features like (date picker in PPC, capability to track unlimited values per day, csv import interface etc.). For more details please visit the 'coming soon...' section. details
2004-01-23 SiDiary runs on Pocket PC 2003 mobile edition!
After implementing a work around for the Pocket PC 2003 platform, a user had now confirmed that SiDiary is working stable on that platform. In this case he was even using the mobile edition so we can say SiDiary is now "MDA"-proofed. :-) details
2004-01-20 Translation of manual completed
Get your English manual today! Translation is about 99% completed! :-) It would be great, if some of the U.S. users can tell me about if you could get the sense out of it...sorry, I'm not a native speaker... Great new info for SiDiary: Together with Oliver Ebert, we will implement an interface for sending data to DiaBass!!! details
2004-01-20 Yesterday's date format issues now solved!
The weird problems about date format are solved: First one was just a display problem, second one was a hard bug that came up when a user have entered data "backwards". I.e. if you've started on 01/19/2004 and then stepped back to the previous days the data of 11. day was overwritten by the data of 1.day. This was a problem of the used ini-class, but it's now fixed. Both problems were just PPC issues. Windows version wasn't concerned by them! (Since on 32bit windows ini-handling is part of the system api ;-) ). details
2004-01-19 Problems with date format?
Two users have contacted me with some weird date format problems. On one system the shown date in the bg-grid screen was 14.14.2003, on another system the data was saved for the wrong day. I will try to fix this but I have to look if I can find anything wrong with the code by "code-reading" since I cannot reproduce these things on neither my device nor the software emulator. I hope that I can provide a bugfix very soon! details
2004-01-18 Am/Pm-Time is now supported
If you've installed the current version with your language file, you can now enter all time entries as am/pm values. Translation of user manual is in progress: ~40% are finished. details
2004-01-14 Bug fixed for statistic without a single value
An abnormal program termination occurred if you've clicked on the statistics tab, if you haven't entered a single bg value before (it was a division by zero error when calculating the average blood glucose value). Since in my database were bg values from about several weeks, when I've finished the first version of the statistics, I had no chance to find this error before... Sorry for that and thanks for the information about this bug! details
2004-01-14 Bug fixed in Win32 client
Sorry: Todays executable for windows 32bit versions had included a link to MsADO. So if you haven't installed these database package on your system, SiDiary won't run. Didn't recognize any problems? ->There was ADO installed :) (on newer versions like Win2000, XP it's already included!). If it didn't run, please donwload the current version, I've re-compiled it without that link. details
2004-01-14 First import interface finished
I've included the first import interface (GlucoControl-database). The next one will be csv-import. You can find a step-by-step description for importing GlucoControl data on the FAQ page. details
2004-01-13 Export finished
The function for exporting data is completed. You now can export the selected data from the statistics tab. Supported formats: Excel, Text/Csv, HTML, RTF. Two new Export-templates are included within the Win32-client zip archive from the download-section. As you can see from the demo excel-export you can now create just every diagramm/graf you want: Just modify your template... :-)) details
2004-01-13 New revision of German documentation
Since the documentation is actually not translated this is a German issue only... There was a "bug" in the documentation, which is now fixed. I hope that we will get an englisch documentation soon! details
2004-01-12 New statistic graph
An additional statistic graph shows an x/y-graph (dot-graph) with all selected BG values. details
2004-01-08 Synchronization of WinCe and Win32
Because ActiveSync is not able to merge two versions of an identical file (in this case the SiDiary data files from the PPC and desktop PC) I've implemented my own synchronisation into the Win32-client. The Ce- and Win32-application now have their own data folder, so ActiveSync can't get in trouble with them. The Win32 app automatically detects changes as a result of data typing on the PPC and it then merges all data. details
2004-01-08 Suggestion of bolus insulin
The WinCe version now shows you the amount of bolus insulin after entering the blood glucose value and your carb intake. It calculates your insulin dose for your meal and adds the correction dose. But keep in mind: It's just a suggestion and you should ask yourself if this suggestion is ok! details
2004-01-06 Implementation of language files finished
Based on a language file seperated from the executables, the current versions are now translated. Any language is possible, just the text file has to be translated. Just download the setup file and the appropriate language file. details
2004-01-05 Now we're on the air!
Thanks to ShE. Now we have this web site as SiDiary's home. But it need to be posted on boards, search engines and web grawlers... details
2004-01-03 Win32 version is now able to print your data
Spend some time for the printing function of the desktop version. details
2004-01-02 Unit of blood glucose implemented.
You can now select from mg/dl or mmol/l details
2003-12-30 Web site is finished.
Completed these web sites. details
2003-12-29 Documentation finished
I've completed the german documentation...sorry translation has to wait... details
2003-12-27 The Win32 app is finished
During my day at the office I have typed my values into the PDA waiting on his docking station - which was not user friendly while my PC was beside of it... So I decided to "downsize" the eVB application to VB5. details
2003-12-15 Optimized calculation of A1C
For the optimized calculation you have to specify a Bolusinsulin with an effect period, which means after how many hours the insulin does have no more lowering effect on your blood glucose. If the algorithm now finds a higher BG value which was corrected with an injection of bolus insulin, it will interpolate for the insulin's effect duration down to the BG value which was monitored next. Let's say you've monitored 200 on 02:00pm and corrected this bolus insulin (with 2 hours effect time) based on your correction rule. Next time you got a BG value of 100 on 06:00pm and you know your correction was right. In such a case without optimization you would get an average of 150. But what has really happened? Because of your correction you've had a BG of 100 since 4pm and from this point it was on the same level up to your next monitor time at 06:00pm. The interpolated average is now 140 - 10 off which makes a big difference for the A1C... The results should now be pretty more realistic. details
2003-11-03 Calculation of A1C
In the statistic form you can see the calculated A1C-value for your monitored blood glucose values. The calculation is based on the following formula: A1C = (BG [mg/dl] + 100) / 36 details
2003-10-15 Statistic analysis of the blood glucose values
The Ce-application now calculates several statistic values and shows a pie chart for the results. details
2003-07-01 WinCe prototype finished.
The first prototype is completed with eVB. Now I can enter my data and make the database growing. details
