I'm sure much more is getting done than is evident to the untrained eye. The one obvious development is that the microwave is now hung. The question now is whether or not the task lighting incorporated into the unit is sufficient, or if we should go ahead and install an LED bar underneath (recognizing that getting it to mount will involve a hack... I'm leaning toward not adding the LEDs.
UPDATE: (Day 50) After some discussion and back and forth, we're going to not try to install a PRuler under the microwave.
