Triptych: updated

I promised two new chapters in this story on the update schedule/desperate hope/self torture itinerary this month, and that much promise, I've managed to keep:   the second is now present and accounted for.  As for managing an update on Scootalift to close out June -- I have a few hours left in the month, and will be trying accordingly.  I can't promise to make it: I can only promise to attempt.

And also to stop when I'm too tired to write coherently.

Not that some people notice any real change...
