I AGREE!!! Nothing like showing up for your reservation to find a piece
of equipment that does not work, which was clearly broken during the last
persons reservation and they just walked away. This is particularly
irritating when there is a time limit on the machine and half of the
reservation is taken up waiting for the equipment to be repaired.
