I don't want anyone to get the wrong idea about what this calculator is for. Its existence in no way suggests that PERS has rolled over and will suddenly pay us what they've refused to do for 4 years. But, if the contrast between the Lipscomb outcome and the Sartain result motivates apathetic window retirees, many of whom have seemed to accept their fate without a fight, to rethink the importance of the battle, then I will consider the outcome a success. I don't know how much work this will involve - I've only briefly examined the Lipscomb source code. I'm guessing it will take me a few weeks to get a clean run and so watch for the revised calculator in early August -- before the status conference on the Arken case.
