I did e-mail my Christmas test line. Note same amount of character punctuations and capitalization as in the text-ed message that I sent.
And your DID say test to break it! Lot less time wasted finger tapping that way.
Here the PNW logger way IS to proof test break new equipment. Then you define the limits of the equipment. The ease of repair. And especially the willingness of the designer/manufacturer/dealer of the equipment to stand behind their product.
The Logger just finishing up our ten acre, 150 truck load project for the first two weeks tried out a brand new Doosan trackloader versus his old Cat loader. Doosan was quicker, more powerful,Tier Three engine, more fuel economical. But 4 foot shorter reach - critical for loading 95 footer polelogs. Shorter reach slower for side of site to the loading deck swing transferring logs to not track travel mud up the property: that’d knock back the new growth by years. Also it Tip up lifting on some of the 18,000 pound pulpwood logs. And I pointed out that some parts would have had to airship from Korea.
The old Cat popped a hydraulic line and was back up running in 4 hours. Needed treads tighteners resealed - an overnight done repair. Cracked a grappler weld on my big stuff - again down for 4 hours, night repair.
He will now spend ~$20,000 this winter on undercarriage rebuilding his Cat 325LL loader. Even IF the hydraulic pump goes, could be swapped out, and back up and running in 2 days.
And NO monthly payments ongoing. Without the slow, expensive repairs on the less capable Doosan as it too use aged needing repairs.
Same decision matrix applies to sites, and computers.
Why us grey hairs say New is no damn good as tweeky, and unproven.
And IF the New is less capable than the old; then what is the point, eh? (to transfer moneys from your pocket into another’s pocket)
NONE of my old typewriters or older computers would up into texts tweek cursor point jumps like this fine gift from my wife does to me every most every time that I shift key hit for a first letter capitalization.
I practice my patience mantras over-type erasing, cursor repositioning and retexting. Otherwise this fine machine would fail a bounce test and “break” too.
