I'm sure Tim won't mind me throwing a little update here.

He's doing well and recovering from an elective surgery.   Enjoying the time off no doubt! :-)

Michael, thanks for asking.

Due to a fall late last year, I dislocated my right shoulder. It was not getting better so I had an MRI that revealed I had moderate tears in both rotator cuffs and a serious tear of the bicep tendon. On March 1 I underwent orthoscopic surgery to repair the damage and have been convalescing since then. I have been learning how to manage the post op pain and loss of mobility, but I am fortunate to have a wonderful XYL that is nursing me back to health.

I have to spend 6 weeks in a sling for it to heal and 12 weeks of PT to regain mobility and strength. For the next 4 weeks, I am religated to doing everything left handed, so while I’ll be back at work starting Monday, I’ll be limited in my public communications.

Hang in there Tim, I just completed the 12 weeks of PT and 6 month checkup for exactly the same thing.  It's painful and a nuisance but follow the doctor's and PT's directions and you'll feel great again very soon.

Wonder if some voice recognition typing software would help?  I have a feeling you might go crazy otherwise.

I'm also doing PT for a torn rotator cuff (a byproduct of my twelve year old son) but Tim wins the prize for greatest severity of a shoulder injury in my book.

Happy to see Tim post the 2.1.33 release, although with one hand I don’t envy him.
