    Has anybody had any experience buying books from the SDJ? I've ordered a couple over the last few weeks and gotten no sort of acknowledgement from the Journal, as in no receipt, no confirmation, no tracking, no e.t.a. Wondering if I got took, and should just open a PayPal dispute now, or wait it out?

    Holy crap, not sure who I feel more unsure about, Bullseye Publishing, whom the books were supposedly purchased through, or PayPal customer service, who felt like a phony spam call by time we hung up

    Have you seen any of the SDJ reprints? Just curious as to the quality of them. Saw one that someone got off eBay and it was bad, looked like the printer had Parkinson's or something as the letters were all shakey and blurry. Made me feel like I was tripping on acid just trying to read it

    Thanks for the lead, I reached out to him, we'll see how his pricing is. As long as it's not ridiculous, I'll spend with him and check 'em out.

    So, I finally got a response from SDJ over my cancelled orders, asking me to close my PP case. He's been in the business for 10+ years, it's not his fault, my order is coming, blah blah blah.

    Then I noticed he made a post this morning that was related... Screenshot_20221018-111221_DuckDuckGo.jpg

    Not that it is related but we order boat lods of different style/weight papers for our batch records in the plant. And last month we had to shut a line down because we could not get a change control routed fast enough to use a different weight and different color record.

    This was due to a 'paper shortage' as well.

    Chalk it up to Covid like everything else.

    LOL.

    The truth is the paper is not in short supply. The mills are stocked to the gills with it. The problem is we still have a big problem with the American workforce. I personally canceled our contract with Georgia pacific because of their average load time of 6 hours. My guys were requesting not to do business with the mills anymore. Paper plants are paying 30+ and still can't get people back to work. I go to a facility that is staffed with seasonal migrants and I'm in and out.

    They're paying 30 but they're working you 12 x 7. We had a dude leave the plant to go to the mill he's begging to cone back to the plant after 6 months.

    I've worked as a millwright for 26 years, worked paper, pulp, foundries, manufacturing plats and powerhouses. The staffing shortage is so bad we were on mandatory 12's+ for last 3 months just for shift coverage. Add in the rotating shifts, I had enough. Drug up and now working in a mchine shop, straight Mon-Fri, 5x10's. Seems like a vacaction!

    I did the 12s x 7 for about 6 months at the last gig. Then I started coming in late, not showing up etc. I smiled when they had me sign my pink slip. I was so excited for a few days off.
