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 a few attempts is that the LED screen on the dash now has the octagonal red stop sign with the words "STOP ENGINE" next to it. I make the call to maintenance, they arrange to have someone arrive to assist. It takes me about thirty minutes to drive from that point of origin to the stop I'm at, yet it takes the mechanic two hours to arrive. The tractor is jumped (which means that I have to keep it running for the remainder of the day) and once I make it to my next stop I see that I'm a full three hours behind a normal day. This is late enough that I wouldn't be able to complete the route and return in time before the 14 hour DOT daily service limit. Arrangements are made for people from the last four stops to meet me at the sixth to last stop. Everyone receives their shipment and I return with an hour left to spare on the DOT limit. As I expected would happen once that tractor was called in for service, I wouldn't see it again for a few days and would have to use a different machine for the rest of the week.

I have returned from today's breakdown with a liftgate issue. The first stop had a few returned engines waiting for me to pick up, so I get the liftgate down and push the first engine over to get it up (and yes there was no pallet jack available nor room available inside the trailer, so I had to push the engine inch by inch). I press up on the liftgate with the engine on it, and it makes a higher pitch whine and doesn't move. My first response was to get the engine off and restore the liftgate right away, as I would be stuck if it couldn't return to the upright position. It didn't. Let the tractor idle, disconnected and reconnected the power cords from the battery box, and there was no change. This time, someone does arrive sooner than two hours to assist with the issue. After a bit of poking and prodding around, the mechanic just jammed up on the switch a few dozen times and after a while, it slowly limped back upwards. If only I had known to try that myself. I didn't, because in consideration of the sound it made while pressing up in that state, I didn't know if continuing to do so would have worn out an engine part of some kind and made a bad situation worse. If only the person who I called from the maintenance department would have told me to try doing that. Regardless, after having that happen I went about the rest of my day, which included removing contents from two metal cages piece by piece because I couldn't use the liftgate to bring them down. I was close, but not close enough at the end. I was late.

Please come soon, background check report. Please.

I think I'll actually make a visit to the arcade this weekend. I've been enjoying such nice progress here at home, I might as well go be reminded how much I really suck at the real game. It's been a while. Meanwhile, I don't know why my high score for Jack wasn't saved on the system. I had to refer to the text file for the proper high score. It's usually pretty good about retaining the records, regardless of how its otherwise falling apart.

Lunar Beat. Extra Mode. Double play. "@" denotes Random chart modifier. All songs are of highest difficulty type unless specified.
First line, by column; song title, EX score percentage and letter grade rank, EX score value and pass/fail, judgment readout (just great, great, good, bad poor), highest combo reached, note count of chart under Extra Mode, original note count of chart, percentage increase of Extra Mode notes over original note count, timestamp.
Second line, by column; pass count / play count, EX score percentage difference from record, EX score value difference from record, judgment readout difference from record (if current play is new record), highest combo reached difference from record (if current play is new record), timestamp of old record (if current play is new record).
