Tired Of Being Cold

Got assigned a load around noon to pickup a load in Illinois. the drive from Ohio took a while as the weather was not helpful. When I finally got there, about a half-hour before closing, I was told the load could not be released because whoever paid for it was still a few dollars short. Of course by this time, the dispatch people had left for the night and the place I’m taking it to is just a port, so no help there. In the morning, we’ll track down who needs to pay for it and then I can run it to Florida.

Can’t wait to get south for a while and get out of this cold and snow shit. But consider that many times in FL I’ve had to wait a while for a load out, but I’m used to that. Might not be so bad, lots of auction yards down there that I’ve grabbed loads from. We’ll see.

On the Linux front, I’ve just spent the last few hours playing around with video editing in Ubuntu. Once I finally figured out how to setup the Firewire so that I might capture DV from my camcorder, it was just a matter of figuring out the strange editing software that came with it. Good enough for a little YouTube video, but not much else. If I can clean up the little vid of my kitty, Chester, spacing out with catnip, I’ll upload it.
