Any word on filibuster "reform"?

The title remained in my browser cache from the last time I posted this 2 years ago, so I reused it.

But, doesn't the Senate have a few hours after the new Congress convenes to change the rules?

1. Reid is trying to forge a bi-partisan plan so they can do it without using the 51 vote

'nuclear option'. He's using the trick to extend the first senate session to last more than this first
day so they have more time.

2. I'm starting to suspect there'll be no real filibuster reform.

3. I have read that reform has been "suspended" for a couple weeks.

I'm not sure how that works yet.
