So yesterday I got my shipment of the new MP60 and the Apex wireless module. I needed to upgrade the firmware and the web pages from apex as I was behind one update. Those of you that have not updated recently may want to becase the new pages are live and look like the ones Curt had at MACNA 2012. Here is my status screen as an example:

Hope you are excited as I am.
After all the changes, delays, and head scratching the tank should be delivered tomorrow afternoon. I will try to take pictures of what I can.

On Tuesday the concrete guys showed up to get the aquarium pad done and open up the brick wall.
In preparation I had to move some old electrical and pull a fascia board from the top. To my pleasant surprise the brick stopped short of the ceiling, this meant that we could take down the whole wall and not support upper brick work.
