  1. LB log - 2015 Week 40

    Wednesday, I go to start my day and begin by pulling the tractor out from the parking space and find that I can barely nudge the steering wheel, as if it had no power steering enabled. It's at the start of the shift, so the quick remedy is to switch to another unit and have it called in. It's back and ready the next day, and I use it for the route and it's fine. Today, I start the day, bring it to the bay, hook up, load the trailer, and get to moving out. Despite no issue all of yesterday and today ...

  2. LB log - 2015 Week 39

    Every day of work this week I was at least forty minutes late at the start of the route. If what I heard from another driver is to be believed, the entire reason for the delay is due to one of the distributing part plants which we serve. Allegedly, they somehow blundered scheduling to an extent that fourteen (out of how many, I don't know) employees who do the work of compiling the outbound freight were granted vacation at the same time. The biggest disappointment about this beyond that factor alone ...

    I wonder what percentage of pet owners enjoy or even actively seek to have their pets sleep in the bed with them as they rest. More than a third? Half? If anything, maybe this percentage would be higher specifically to cat owners. We have two cats here and when it comes time for me to sleep during work days, my wife will both join me for a bit as well as try to have a cat join us to help with the relaxation process and such. This probably is logical enough, but only if one excludes the times when ...

  4. Time Crisis 5: True Mastermind Edition

    Not too long ago, the True Mastermind Edition upgrade for Time Crisis 5 started trickling out to select areas. Now it has been released worldwide. The kit comes with 2 pop cards labeled "New Stages! The Complete Edition!" & "Mastermind Edition Released!' for operators to hang on the cabinet. Look for a new title screen which also features Wild Dog & Wild Fang instead of just Luke & Marc. Upgrading the game is as simple as plugging in a USB jump drive.

  5. LB log - 2015 Week 37

    Having a Monday off gives me a direct benefit to two weeks, in that it ends one week with a nice three day respite, and it starts the next one with one day out of five already in the past. I may have had to use a different tractor two days out of the week, and the normal one which I use might be going right back into the shop after today due to the engine light coming back on again despite being in maintenance for two days, but I still feel much less drained on this Saturday than I have many others. ...

    I suppose the main theme to this week of work is "transition". One of the stops which was removed from my route was silently returned to me at the start of this week, and the reason for that is because the parts plant is dragging its heels on getting the stop transferred from one shuttle to another. On that Monday, it was a heavier amount than normal and the stop added an hour to my day. It appears that under normal circumstances, the additional stop will add no more than a half hour to ...

    Hi. It's patch week. There's some FF14 live event stream bullshit going on right now for which I have to see how it will affect anything I do. Work is good, song sessions went from not-good to good in a steady upward trend this week. Not much time to say much anything else, as if there would be much more of import to say and as if anyone other than Google spiders look at this. See you next week.

  9. LB log - 2015 Week 34

    The change to my work route is very much to my benefit in terms of time spent, and I should see next week's paycheck first before fully confirming that I break even in terms of earnings otherwise. I believe it's the case, but I don't want to crow about it until I know for sure. Regardless, the changes make the route much more tolerable. I lose four stops and $20 per day in earnings. In doing so, I lose two hours of time required to run the route. With that change, I have enough time to do the optional ...

    My work route has been adjusted, with the changes in effect starting next week. The first four stops are removed, and I must run the route in the sequential order as set by the parent corporation rather than the adjusted method which had been done before. I lose $20 per day for the change, but I should have at least two hours less time to take on the route, which means I can do the pre-load preparation and recover the $20 loss, and doing that in turn should mean my runs will go smoother through ...

    I have just returned from my niece's birthday party. She will be 2 years old tomorrow. In terms of attendants and scope, it was a much more reduced affair compared to last year, and that's a difference which I personally welcome at least. I found an etsy site to get her a pair of hand made crochet dolls from the show Peg + Cat, and I think she might like them OK. She definitely loves Thomas the Tank Engine more at the moment. It's good to see her happy.

    This week of work wasn't very ...

  12. LB log - 2015 Week 31

    For the first four days of this work week, I used four different tractors on the route. For the first three days of this, I had to start the day by first going to the nearby truck rental facility to fuel up, which meant that everything else I need to do to prepare for the route gets pushed back that much longer. Despite that, in respect of volume both inbound and outbound my days were basically normal, so running the route wasn't too bad once I got rolling. When I finally got "my" old ...

    Two breakdowns this week, and wouldn't you know it, they occur on the bookends.

    Let's start with Monday. All through last week, the tractor I used was having some trouble starting up, but not enough that it caused any kind of warning lights to ever come on. Just a few seconds of labored turning before igniting. I get to my first stop this evening and stop the tractor, as usual. Make the delivery and return to get going. The engine won't turn over. The only thing that changes after ...

    One of the incidents that came last week concerned a return of some engines. The location isn't very busy and in the few months which I've had this route now I don't recall having delivered more than one engine to them in the entire time. When I approached that day, there were three for me to take back. Most days I don't have a pallet jack with me and this was one such day, so I needed to find something to use on their site to move the gear to my trailer. Their parts department is separated from ...

    Company's over this weekend. I'm still not really sure why they bothered, other than to do so.

    Work week was mostly OK except for today. I can really do without running until the very last minute of the fourteen hour period, and people talking down to me like I'm an idiot.

    Song sessions were still basically good.
