    what if the cellphone acts up or it gets stolen:confused-96:. same thing when some of the qaullcoms started acting up I remember drivers having to keep paper log books!! personaly id'e rather keep a paper log using my own brain vs trusting any computer that could start acting like a mental patient at any time. sure tech is great but it could fail at anytime and you need a backup plan

    I used to cut up the franks, and sautee them, then dump the beans on, and warm it all up, and there ya go.

    How do you do it?

    We don't call them franks here, they're sausages.

    But I do them like that too, with a squirt of sweet thai chili sauce in the beans sometimes.

    Who needs a log book when you have the fifth amendment? Oh wait that doesn't apply unless you have already been arrested.

    Attempting to make a living is a fineable offense in this country. It's been that way since they implemented the "temporary" income tax.

    And anything you say before you get arrested is still admissible--even though Uncle Sam said you had to say it. I wonder what would happen if i posted that on my trailer door? " I don't need a log book I have a fifth amendment."

    Yep... another one.

    OTOH, the Elog Mandate is law, and in 18 months and change, paper logs are only an acceptable substitute when your electronic nanny is on the rag.

    Simple solution.... Get an e-log device and smash it with a hammer.

    Maybe not smashing it just screw it up so it won't function or scrambled
