That's the point. Thank you for explaining further
Yet still some poskim have an issue. Little anecdote... I once had the opportunity to perform libun with a blow torch for a prominent posek who does not allow self clean. At the point which he said was libun gamur the heat only measured about 500° F. The heat was measured very accurately with a markal temperature indicator stick and a calibrated infared thermometer. He still maintained that self cleaning doesn't work since maybe direct fire is different intense heat.

You mean heseiko bifnim? Then why not get the oven to 550 and then turn on the broiler?

Anyone have any specific maareh mekomos saying even a 'first half' holder can shave tomorrow?

Wasn't sure if that could mean davka when rosh chodesh is shabbos-sunday, but I actually don't think the calendar can fall out that way. And besides, it wouldn't make much sense to be mechalek.

Thanks for posting.

Actually, I take it back. Apparently there is some discussion in the later poskim as to whether the M"B meant to include a scenario like this year, where shaving erev shabbos involves 'violating' the tzava'a of R Yehuda Hachasid. I don't have the specific maareh mekomos handy, but I heard that Rav Vosner and Rav Chaim Kanievsky said it's not included in the M"B's heter, while Rav Moshe said it is.

ETA - Specific maareh mekomos for this machlokes here: https://judaism.stackexchange.com/questions/113721/may-one-shave-haircut-on-friday-rosh-chodesh-iyar.

And obviously this later machlokes is only relevant if you follow the tzava'a of R Yehuda Hachasid the rest of the year as well.

Rav Wossner was Matir if the first day of Rosh Chodesh is on Friday

From Rabbi David Sperling——
Question: Can a family listen to uplifting music during the quarantine of corona?

Answer: Shalom,
Thank you for your question. First, let me send my blessings for complete health for all, and a speedy end to the virus in the world.
The custom not to listen to music during the days of the counting of the Omer has sources going back hundreds of year, but it is not mentioned in the Talmud, nor even in the Shulchan Aruch. As such, we can approach your question with more space to rule leniently.
There is not a complete consensus among the Rabbis as to the clear limits of this custom.  When it come to recorded music - some forbid only live music, allowing all recorded music. Some forbid any recorded music at all, even purely vocal recordings. Some allow only recorded vocal music without instruments. Others allow recorded instrumental music on the condition that it is not dance music, but more gentle slow music. Others allow recorded religious music that helps one serve Hashem. In short – even before we discuss the question of listening this year in quarantine, the custom itself is not so clear.
However, even those who in years past took a strict practice, and refrained from listening to music (according to whichever ruling) may be more lenient under the present situation. This is because when a person is confined to their house in many cases this can lead to depression and other physiological troubles. The custom of not listening to music was only to avoid excessive joy. With this in mind, listening to recorded music this year will probably not lead to excessive joy – rather just help a person not fall into painful sorrow.
So, in answer to your question – yes, this year in the lock-down situation we find ourselves, someone who feels that listening to music will help them get through the troubles, may (and should) listen. (I have also seen in the name of many great Rabbis who ruled like this).
Blessings.

Don't see how that would affect the actual question that we were discussing. I know for me certainly your point wouldn't be a big deal. I can keep both halves, shaving on R"C, lag ba'omer, and before shavuos. Lots more than 33 days.

I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.
