About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    Indeed — seen a lot of those here… plus the new security cameras, the credit card only pumps that are the furthest from the cashier, and stickers that inform people that in Minnesota — driving off without paying has a rather high punishment attached.

    …still waiting for the security gate entrance.

    Wasn’t that long ago you could pump first then pay down here in the South. Oh well, times change. :-(

    It’s been pay then pump in CA for a long time. Welcome to the rest of the world.

    Living in Oregon, they don’t even let us pump our own gas. :P

    Unless you’re on the rez!

    In Arizona as well. You may still find some pump first stations in small/rural ares, but in the big/moderate cities, all pay first.

    I’ve seen alot of them here too…and I wonder if it’s desperation of folks who truly cant afford gas prices but have to get to work…or if it’s just an increase of the usual assholes…There are entire neighborhoods full of foreclosed homes here…it’s really sad to see.
