I just clicked on the Beemaster app and I had to put in my name and password again.

That is set for
Allow for websites that I visit.
I would think that would be correct. Yes
I have a 3? shim to accommodate the deep to medium height difference and plan on using blocks under the medium frames to minimize burr comb.

That is quite a clever idea for someone who is new to beekeeping !  Seeing as you are able to build your own equipment, another possibility (one I'm currently mulling over myself) is to make short frames - without top bar lugs - to be cable-tied underneath the mediums.  Then the bees can build natural comb there to their heart's content. And then, whenever convenient, those short frames can be removed and tied together underneath a plain top bar, so that nothing is wasted.

Over here in England we have frames which are 6", 9" and 12" deep - so a handful of 3 inch 'short frames' would allow migration between the various sizes, albeit with a small amount of work involved. To be clear - I'm not suggesting that this ought to be part of a regular operation - just something useful to employ on the odd occasion, should a disparity of frame size present itself.

The recent OS 9.02 update messed up some of my preferences too.  Email in particular.

I presume you checked Settings>Safari>Block cookies?

Worst case, you could always treat the nuc like a cutout and remount the comb into medium frames.  JP has lots of very entertaining and educational videos of him doing various cutouts.  Being remounted into frames doesn't seem to slow the bees down very much.  The bees will reattach the comb and throw the rubber bands out within a few days.

BTW, you should add your location to your profile so people know better how to advise you.
DOWN UNDER BEEKEEPING / Preventative Burning Off and related Smoke

DPAW is burning off here in the SW of WA, and I have a lot of smoke blowing in from burns a good way away. Do you think the smoke in the air would have any influence on bees inclination to swarm?

Hi Anybrew2: Thanks for the heads up re swarming potential in the SW of WA about now. Have been noticing a lot of hanging about outside the front of the hive with one of mine, and went in yesterday to manipulate frames along the lines of your checkerboarding. Took a frame of honey up to super with one that had some capped brood on it to encourage them to come up to the top box and get cracking instead of lazing about out front  :cheesy:
 There was no sign of swarm cells in brood box. Hope this will make a difference to the room in box 1.
