Ep 34 - Google Drive
In March 2017, Google introduced Drive File Stream, a desktop application for G Suite (now Google Workspace) customers using Windows and macOS computers that maps Google Drive to a drive letter on the operating system, and thus allows easy access to Google Drive files and folders without using a web browser. It also features on-demand file access, when the file is downloaded from Google Drive only when it is accessed. Additionally, Drive File Stream supports the Shared Drives functionality of Google Workspace.
Google Drive allows users to share drive contents with other Google users without requiring any authorization from the recipient of a sharing invitation. This has resulted in users receiving spam from unsolicited shared drives. Google is reported to be working on a fix.

After a seriously long build-up, the first Intel Optane powered storage devices are making their way into consumers' hands. Unfortunately, they aren't exactly groundbreaking either. The first iteration is Intel Optane Memory, available in 16 or 32 gigabyte capacities, which act as a cache drive, accelerating even the slowest SATA HDDs into a new world of speed and low latency.

Thanks, Dave. Our guest today is truck driver Melissa Williams. Melissa is an independent owner-operator, and she's partnered as a driver on Vorto's 5F platform, and that is a driver-focused freight-matching service. Welcome, Melissa. Thanks for joining us.
We write often about the need for truck drivers across the industry and the many efforts out there to recruit and retain people for the job. And I wanted to start by asking how long you've been a driver and how you got into the business.
I classify myself as a rookie driver. I only have about three and a half years on my license. I was working at FedEx Express at the Minneapolis airport, and a truck driver position came open. They asked me if I wanted to drive. My immediate response was, "You do know I drive a Mini Cooper" And, yeah, they laughed at me. And I told them, you know, "Sure, why not Let's give it a try. How do you know what you love to do if you don't try everything" Not only that, but if I don't like it, it just adds to the list of skills that I have available to me in the future.
So, going back a little bit, when you decided to take your commercial drivers license course through your job a few years ago and then work as a driver, did you expect to enjoy the industry as much as it sounds like you do today I'm wondering if this new career has surprised you in any way
Yes. So initially, I had, you know, being a truck driver wasn't on my radar, even though my grandfather was a truck driver. And I was doing that, obviously, it was local work, and I realized local work's not for me. I didn't enjoy it. I didn't like it. I figured, you know, if I'm gonna work long hours in a truck, I want to go places, I want to see things. And that's the luxury of trucking is, there's so many different areas in it, so many different types of work that you can do in trucking that you can find what's best for you to make you happy and fulfill your life in the ways that you need to be fulfilled.
Over-the-road trucking is not for everybody. You have to be comfortable being alone. You have to be comfortable being away from home. It's a very specific lifestyle, and if it's not for you, then maybe drive local. That's a challenge that a lot of people end up with. But also, safety. You know, for women, yes, for sure, because, you know, truckstops, you're in different cities in different states all the time. But, I mean, that's men and women, but us as women tend to be a little bit more aware. We tend to be a little bit more cautious of that, just because, well, we're women.
Correct. So, with the ELD [electronic logging device] limitations, there's a lot of times where you may be sitting in a dock for 10 hours waiting to get unloaded, and a lot of times as a company driver, your company will tell you, "Well, you just had a 10-hour break, you have to drive." Just because you were sitting in the dock for 10 hours doesn't mean that you were sleeping or rested enough to drive. So, know your physical limitations when it comes to sleep and stress. But also, if you are petrified to go to, I don't know, Laredo, Texas, don't go. You're the driver of the truck. Your safety and your mental well-being is the most important thing.
