    Impressive indeed.


    But you did just remind me another downside to some linux distros. Driver support can be a real pita sometimes.

    Here's looking at you Arch Linux. They are better about stuff now. But many years ago we measured someone's basic competency down to if they could even install the sucker. Then there was hope they wouldnt be useless.



    Here's one the true geeks will understand. sudo.jpg

    TA at Commerce City, CO.

    I reserved a spot, but when I got here there were no unoccupied reserved spaces. There were no other unoccupied spaces either.

    I had to wait about 30 minutes for security to evict someone so I could have my space. They had a very long list of trucks that were parked in reserved parking that shouldn't have been.

    They should have planned ahead, especially at a place like this.

    Yeah reserving a spot in Denver is bloody near a requirement. Matter of fact coming over the mountains with 30 minutes left was what made me appreciate reserves parking for the first time. Came in at 1-2am. I had already reserved the spot. Sure enough 1 empty spot left :)

    Most of us really complained when they first started doing it, but it sure comes in handy.

    It sure does. But 50 years from now drivers will still be complaining about it.

    Probably only the drivers that fail to prepare, and then get kicked out of the pirated reserved spot when they are out of hours.
     
    FerrissWheel Thanks this.

    Well, I am glad you haven’t blow up Denver terminal yet.

    Have you tried that Walmart across the street? I did a 10 there last time and they didn’t complain.

    I don't bring a trailer into that Walmart. The room is just too tight, especially when trying to leave.

    Northfield, MN at the J.

    Just came back from home time, and a very short day it was.
    I picked up a t-called load from the terminal delivering about 20 miles away at 1200, and my next load does not pick up until tomorrow morning.

    I'll be going to Cheyenne, WY, so the trend of keeping me in the west continues.
    If this keeps up I will have to assume I am being held hostage in the west because of my home terminal of Otay Mesa. I may have no choice but to switch terminals to Inver Grove in order to change where I run.

    As soon as my regular DM is back I will mention it to him. He knows I am very unhappy being restricted in the far western states.

    Anytime I run to Phoenix I end up going to LA and then running up and down I-5 and maybe over to SLC or Denver. It seems to be very difficult to get east of I-25 once you’re out there.
