I always get a 403 Forbidden error when I try to download the installer. Is there another way to access or register with Apneaboard as every page is forbidden other than the main OSCAR page.

I'm not sure why you would be getting a 403 error. The link in my first post is the main download page. You can also try https://www.sleepfiles.com/OSCAR/index.html

Try clearing your browser cache and reloading the page. Also, if you are using a VPN, try turning it off for the download. See if that works for you....

Thanks so much for updating this useful program.

I have one question, when you already have Oscar on your mac and want to update it, do you have to remove the current version before installing the new one? Or can I just install the new version without removing the old one and it'll all be good?

Thanks again for your work on this, much appreciated!

No need to remove the prior (older) version of OSCAR to get the latest version.
I never have had to do that.

Just download the latest version and then go through the install process and it will "overwrite" the older version and all your old data will be there for viewing.

I can get into this page and mark a change. However, I cannot scroll down to the bottom of the screen to click the Save button. I am running the version in the Subject line.

Are you running Windows, do you have a high-resolution monitor? That can cause a similar appearance problem on Windows.

If so, go to the OSCAR Troubleshooting Wiki and see the section on "OSCAR Graphics Problems."

If not a high resolution monitor, what is your screen size in pixels? (e.g., 1980/1200 or whatever yours is).

Added Oscar to my Macbook Air, don't see a huge difference to Sleepyhead. I think I did read that Sleepyhead wasn't having any more updates, can someone confirm this. Thanks. If so will delete it and stick with Oscar.

Consider it confirmed.

SleepyHead's creator has dropped the ball.
OSCAR is based off original SleepyHead though.

There will be no further updates to SleepyHead.

OSCAR is free.

A hidden link can be buried in a text display that can look like a link. The safest thing to do when hovering on a link, is to always look at the bottom left of your browser to see the actual link if it is clicked.

Here's an example:
https://freecpaps.com/claim-yours

It actually goes to this site.
