Another successful upgrade

I could get used to this, given how simple it has been. Still working properly after another upgrade.

It's the July really long weekend

Friday was Canada Day, Monday is Independence Day. That makes it a very long weekend when you take stat holidays in Canada and report into a group in the US ($DAYJOB). As a result, I get to spend the Monday collecting any items that cropped up on the Friday and taking care of them before my compatriots south of the border have a look at them. This doesn’t really happen all that often, but it’s nice when it does.
