Happy Birthday!

I was at work and the ladder gave way; not like collapsed but the spring hinge that is bolted to the guide rail was apparently broken, so as I went up on the ladder, turned to the side, the ladder shot out... Turns out the ladder was broken for many years but no one changed it; I didn't know as I've only been to this building site twice.

Rant - only one.
I was taking the c clip off of my turbo to adjust preload. Forgot to put my finger behind it. Flung off, hit the wall and is currently somewhere on my garage floor.

That is all.

DR Docs are always a pain in the tail. I've had write them with the assumption that an untrained monkey is following the instructions and bringing the application up. Yes, a bit of hyperboly (since an untrained monkey can't read).
