Default Fedex - still killing trees

Even though the MEM computers are saving the planet by printing flight plans on both sides of the paper, we still manage to kill trees at an alarming rate.

I was bored today and picked up our new MD-11 Pilot Handbook Supplement (date 26 Apr 2013) to take a look. Anyone else notice this book doesn't make a single reference to Jepps but DOES have an entire section under the "software" tab devoted to EFB operations using LIDO?

We've been using Jepps since Feb........ WTH??

That's so you won't forget how to use LIDO when we switch back in 7 more years!

I thought this thread would be about alder randomly printing releases until he found the right one. The technique I use when the ramp doesn't tell me how to add their preferred printer.

I have a few shrubs in the backyard I am willing to sacrifice to further the cause. Anyone in particular I should contact to make pick-up arrangements?
