Has anyone ever grabbed their GBA SP when they needed a flashlight?  I just realized it's all I ever reach for if I need one.  And I even have a proper flashlight in the house.

Indeed. I often have my DS or GBA with me when I'm putting my daughter to bed, in the vain hope that I could ever play it while she falls asleep. However, it does make it quite easy to check on her.

Our power went out a few weeks ago.  I grabbed my GBA, used it to find my way my living room chair, and sat there playing Dragon Warrior 3 until the power came back on smile

Believe it or not!  I test my blood sugar about 8 or 9 times a day (Type I diabetic, the old "Juvenile Onset" type - and if I wake up unsure of why I've awoken, I'll often test it then.  The monitor has a light  for the results, but you still have to see where to stick yourself, where to place the blood drop, etc. - all without waking anyone up -  or yourself too much, for that matter. The GBA SP, then the DS was what i used to accomplish the task.

mytocles, are you familiar with Glucoboy? I don't know if it's actually on the market yet, though.

addamsapple - thanks for the post - sorry I missed it when you did it - been wildly crazy around here lately!

Yes, I am familiar with it, although I have kind of lost track of it, so I'm not sure if it's out yet either.  Looks interesting; f it isn't made just for the kiddies, I'd probably get one eventually, depending also on price.  Motivation is the key to good diabetes control, which is why I subscribe to several magazines, am getting an "Insulin is not a Cure" t-shirt, and subscribe to web info on Type 1 Diabetes...  

Are you the person here who's working on it in some way?  There was another post about it a while back.  Or are you a Type 1, or parent of one? PM me if you want to chat it up, or start another thread about it - there's got to be other diabetics here...
