When I got here, I was the first-and-only.
If I ever get a playmate, s/he and I will embark
on a "learning experience", which will benefit
an eventual third-in, fourth-in, and so on.
I had the beginnings of a nice procedure before we
downsized (twice), but now we're almost back to the
size we had when I started working here, but with a
bit more history and maturity. Needless to say, much
of the procedure no longer applies. Tools keep evolving,
so that's another moving target. I'd use it for target
practice, except that I don't have time for such things right now.
I may need to dust off the how-we-do-things doc when we
start growing again. The chances that it won't need
extensive revision will be tiny.
Live goes on.
