I'm nearly up to my minimum viable product release consisting of physical and logical decomposition of systems. I'll be putting in the final tweaks in before tagging tomorrow.
I still have a bunch of features to fill in which will hopefully come in time. I have one data model wrinkle that needs to be fixed at some point and a few for which fixes may be needed... but it's starting to feel actually useful to me.

Tagged as promised. This should be enough for anyone who is interested to get a small feel for what is on offer.

I have prepared a simulation of the Monty Hall problem on jsfiddle: http://jsfiddle.net/yGsHL/6/
Check it out if you are having trouble. The code should be simple enough to follow. Read the code comments and watch as Benedict Cumberbatch and Monty Hall battle it out for what I think is a Ducatti Veyron. I don't know. I'm not a car person. 2008 era Cumberbatch makes the initial choice and 2011 era Cumberbatch makes the switch.

Thanks for giving it a try :)
The excess types currently stick around until that level of the model is reopened. I may rework that model in the future.
I'll think about the numbering. It may be the traditionalist in me but my thinking is that they should be there in order to help users navigate though a model and particularly to be able to uniquely identify an item within the model. I may be able to hide them though.
Currently the flows are intended to cover a superset of those available at different times or in different modes. So they don't necessarily indicate that the flow is always present. There is currently no notation in the model for describing mutual exclusion between flows. One approach that might work for you is to describe the different modes using different functions, each with an overlapping but separate set of flows.

I'm currently in the process of adding budget/resource requirements to the model. I'd be interested in hearing more about how you're using it and what would make it easier to express what you want to say in it. I'd like to work hazard analysis into the model also but at the moment am mostly working on whichever feature I have most completely developed in my own head. Feel free to have a look at the issues list on github and add your thoughts there as well.

I'm putting together the fourth video in this series now, part of a four-part sub-series "What is a system?". I'm still figuring out where to go with video 5, but am thinking "The V lifecycle".

I didn't partake in the hot pot tonight but enjoyed dumplings, won ton soup and Mongolian beef. These are very mainstream dishes in Australian Chinese cuisine and I was hoping for more diversity in the menu when I sat down but the dishes were prepared in an authentic Chinese style and would have been very much at home in Hong Kong.
