more of the norm  
I now have 2 new working electronic sliding doors.
Of course, I found a whole bunch of problems with my software which didn't exist when I was testing it originally.  Those are fixed, for the most part.  The mechanical problems are a different story.  I have so much power on my controller, that the doors move faster than my hardware can control as I had planned.  I ended up dropping the max speed to less than 40% and pretty much increased the software breaking to max to get it to work at a reasonable speed.  Eventually, I'll rewrite the motion software to allow more speed without destroying the door in the process.

In other news, I dodged another layoff.  Seems like this is happening way too often lately.

Kim is coming home, and for a whole week!  Unfortunately, I will be on the road a couple days next week, so I can't take advantage of it.
