The Update can be applied to all languages of Revit Architecture. Currently, only the English download page has the update, but the other language download pages will be available by the middle of next month. Until then users with other languages can download the update from the English page.
Please note, the update release does not contain any new functionality. However, we are developing functionality enhancements that will be available to Subscription customers in the near future. All of the fixes that are in Updates 1 & 2 will be included in the functionality enhancement release, so if you need to update a large number of seats it may be best to wait until it is released unless there is a fix that you absolutly must have.

Wow, its been 3 months to the day since lobbing in hospital with severe cellulitus and subsequent finding out about my diabetes and high blood pressure.
At the beginning of this year I was approx 150 kgs (330 pounds) give or take a few kilos... never really knew for sure... I decided then it was time to shed some weight.
Landing in hospital in May, I was down to 137.5 kg (300 pounds) but unfortunately I had a raging infection in my leg, blood sugar levels exceeding 15 mmol/l (270 mg/dl) and a blood pressure of 198/116. A few days later after a fasting blood test, blood sugars were taken as 10.6 mmol/l (approx 190 mg/dl) and BP had dropped to about 160/110.
Now 3 months later, I'm weighing at 121.6kg (268 pounds) with still a ways to go... ideally around 90kg (198 pounds) will probably look the best even though that is still considered overweight for my height/age.. so we'll just have to wait n' see.
My average daily blood glucose reading is about 6-ish (approx 100), however the true indicator level is the fasting reading which will happen in a few weeks.
Blood pressure is still a tad high 120/90 but coming down all the time. Its just amazing what positive vibes, best wishes, etc can do for one's healthy outlook.
To this day I'm still "tickled pink" that I had a visit from AUGI's sweetheart, Lynn Allen. That visit boosted my morale so much so its was amazing. So huge thanks to Lynn and all my other friends who came to visit, sent cards, emails who helped with keeping a positive healthy outlook on life...

However, I am due to return to hospital early July for day laser surgery, initally on my left leg, then later my right. Basically they make a small incision above the knee, insert a small tube with a laser attachment into the offending surface vein and heat the non-working value, which destroys it and boils the blood inside the vein which collapses it. Hmmm sounds err intersting...
Lower left leg @ 4th June
Extra good news I've lost 5kg since leaving hospital :)

The leg is healing nicely every day, I'm still on antibiotics (which don't give me the sh*ts, thankfully) and I'm monitoring my blood glucose levels 3-4 times per day.
I'd like to thank all who visited, sent emails and/or cards and particularly the doctors & nurses of Ward 4 South FPH.

This afternoon my leg was about to be fitted with a compression bandage which had these cute little images on them to indicate level of compression - however on the 1st attempt of placing the bandage it was placed perhaps a wee bit toooo tight and pain levels went thro' the roof...
Thankfully the fabulous nurses understood my incoherant babbling and all was rectified and pain eventually subsided particularly with the help from pain meds...
On to other more interesting stuff - today's menu
Breakfast - weetbix with berry fruit yoghurt
Lunch - Roast capsicun & swiss cheese quiche with chips (fries)... man I shoulda ordered the side salad (probably their master plan...)
Dinner - braised pork with plum sauce, rice and asian greens
today's surprise visitors: Cathy Reid & BDASA el Presidente, Neil Jackson
thanks guys your visit helps with the positive power of healing

Everything I saw were "mini" mice, suitable for notebooks n' stuff - I'd just gotten rid of one of those, although my old one was a tad larger than what was generally on offer...I looked at both Logitech and Microsoft but to no avail...
I was almost ready to give up and then I found it... a glorious shaped, exceedingly stylish, large-ish mouse and it felt as if it was made for my hand...
I was extremely eager to get back to the office and put it through its paces. Using this mouse is almost orgasmic... really it just glides over all surfaces and it feels as if its an extension of your own hand. It is quite simply the best mouse
I've used... its just amazing.
So what is it, you ask... its a Microsoft Explorer Mouse with BlueTrack Technology. Its cordless, wireless and rechargeable and it has funky blue lighting effects and did mention its feels bloody fantastic.
Overall, I've been pretty impressed with the mouse. It is a tad bit expensive for a mouse but if you do spend alot of time in front of the computer, I think that the most important parts not to skimp out on are the mouse, keyboard and monitor since they usually last several computer upgrades and make the difference when using the computer over long periods of time.Microsoft currently have a 25% rebate till the end of January on their Mouse and Keyboard range so if you are in the hunt to get one, now would be a good time.
Definitely one to consider if you are thinking of replacing your existing mouse.
The keyboard I'll need a bit longer to get the feel off but it does live up to its name - Comfort Curve Keyboard 2000 :)

For many years MBH (much better half) & I have collected Monopoly games, thankfully many of our friends have indulged us in our pastime.
I did have a list but as another friend pointed out recently, a picture is worth a thousand words...
With thanks to all who supported us in our little collection, here it is...
