Also, does anybody have any guidance on my question from yesterday?:

I have an inclination, which I didn’t indulge today, to stand around with the bar (i.e., rest between reps (not sets)) when the number of reps in a set goes above about five.  What’s the acceptable amount of time between reps (I would expect this to be about five seconds or so)?  Does it matter as long as I don’t sit down the bar?  Thanks for the advice.

I’ve never heard of a set amount of time, but certainly there is a point at which things get a bit sketchy.  Taking a 5 second break after rep 5 seems ok.  Taking something like a 50 second break I think defeats the purpose of the prescribed set.  It also depends on which set you’re on.  If you’re needing a large break between reps on your first set, you might be going too heavy and you’ll want to adjust.  If you take a large break on your last set, then your exploring your limits and all is good.
