    I've lived in MSP for 3 years now and I have never once thought about plugging in my car, and I came from ANC before that, where I rarely plugged in my car. The only time it was a requirement was on a trip to FAI where the air temp was -45°F. Pretty sure you would survive.

    My time in ND I found that cold is cold.

    32-0 is cold, below 0 it just hurts.

    If 32F or 0C is defined as hurting then as a Michigan Man born and bread, I vote you're subject to man card revocation.

    Can't say I'm Alaska winter ready but negative Faherenheight air temp or negative double digit wind chill is where I draw the line. Colder than that is miserable! Then again, just think of the A/C performance!

    Wasn't it like -62F in FAI recently?

    My beers don't even get that cold.

    When I used to refuel planes @ STL, we had this guy from Alaska who worked with us. Don't know HOW he got to STL, but there he was. Anyway, he used to say this ALL THE TIME!

    Speaking of PSA anyone heard or saw that that plane hitting a deer today in CLT?

    That planes gonna be out of service for a long, long, time
    Oh and that poor deer. I can only imagine the Captain calling the dispatcher telling him/her what happened.

    Note: The impact. Plus it was leaking fuel. I know the in board Slat assembly gonna be replaced

    I'd imagine they were so low to the ground that they didn't have time and were too task saturated to call their dispatcher.

    Yes, indeed, we are in Bridgeton. Unfortunately, much of Bridgeton got leveled when STL put in runway 11-29. They say it was the most EXPENSIVE public works project in St. Louis history...

    That's it! Now that I'm working and have my badge, I don't go down to the lobby much anymore; the back entrance and freight elevator are closer to the SOC...

    It depends on WHEN you ask me that! The other night when I had my medical emergency and tail swaps (i.e. when I HAD to make up time) and LIDO was running slow & doing constant RAM updates, not too much. Sometimes LIDO runs slow, and it makes a bad day worse. When it does multiple, long RAM updates, you can't do squat! Plus, it has to talk to Germany all the time, since Lufthansa, LIDO's maker, is based there.

    Netline Ops is quirky, to say the least. I think it would be better if the usable tabs had dark black letters though; since they're always shown in a slightly darker gray, it looks like they're not active. You know how MS Office will have black letters for an active tab or command, while they'll have slightly darker gray lettering for inactive tabs? I wish Netline did the same.

    I can't compare them to anything else, because I haven't USED anything else. That is, I can't compare LIDO to SABRE, because I haven't used SABRE. I talked to someone who used SABRE when we had it, and they said they liked it better than LIDO. When LIDO works well, it's ok; when it doesn't (like the other night), then it's not. What do you think of them? Why?
