Since we seem to be in a period of a large number of "update" posts, it seems it would be a good idea to have an update of this situation.
At present, we have a wisdome tooth update, a sinus update, and a hernia update. Have I left anything out? I'm quite certain that all of the above updates are important. I hope this update will become just as important.
Perhaps I should add one more update. I need to find a little more practice time on tuba. Oh, well. I am keeping up with all those important updates.

After fifteen years of waiting for the appropriate time to express my recommendations, and after my church finished its large expansion project, the rector announced a focus group to take recommendations for upgrades or changes in programs. I was finally able to submit a 12-page paper recommending some upgrades to the pipe organ and music program, after consultation with the music staff. The paper was well received. Now we wait to see if it is a feasible line item in the bigger picture.

I'm waiting to hear from my dry cleaners whether the stains on my underwear were able to be removed. They've told me that they use an ancient Chinese secret. I'll keep you all updated.
What piece were you playing when said stains were set?
On an aside, this post will soon likely be moved to "Off Topic", mine was My update was not serious, nor posted in spite. Sometimes I think we just poke fun at one of our own like we would a kid brother. No harm intended, just a little clean fun. After all, we're family.
While hanging around the ATLAS lab at University of Arizona this week, I finally got VISSIM running realistically modeling a four-phase TTI diamond interchange using the software from an Econolite ASC/3 controller running in the simulation loop.
Yup, just as I had thought. Increasing the cycle length of a four-phase diamond increases delay and congestion.
The question is, though, how cycle length relates to throughput and residual queue persistence.
I'll keep you updated.
Oh, and I'm expecting a used Ten Tec Centaur power amplifier to be sitting on my doorstep when I get back to Virginia on Friday. It has 811a transmitting tubes in it, and I'm going to test it with 572b triodes. I'm expecting 600 reliable watts of output, and better circuit protection than the Ameritron AL-811 in which I just replace parasitic suppressors, tubes, and B- biasing diode.
Again, I'll keep you updated.

I'm about 40% through a project of hanging 160 sq. ft. (640 cu. ft) of storage space high in the rafters of my pole barn to store packing material (peanuts, bubble wrap, packing pillows, foam, cartons, etc.)

My wife got a flat tire this morning. I had to leave work while in the middle of replicating data between the EMC NAS at our corporate HQ and our co-location. Tire iron wouldn't budge the lugnuts. Got out the trusty crossbar lugwrench. Even standing on one side wouldn't budge the lugnuts. Dug out the impact gun from my days as a serious automotive hobbyist. That did the trick. Took the tire down to Firestone. Couldn't be patched. Had to get a new one, but not in stock - will pick it up after work and get it on before orchestra rehearsal tonight. Big $$$ for the big stupid SUV tire, fortunately almost the exact same amount as my monthly Kolledge lessons check which arrived yesterday.
