The saga continues... The printer strikes back

[ #16364 ]
No rest for the wicked...

At the moment I'm cursing at the printer queue. Printing sends all jobs to the printer queue (figures) and because I check the printer manually if the paper is out, once the paper is out, all jobs that haven't been printed yet are still there. Ofcourse the paper is always out during an existing print so I need to reprint that one...

I've finally decided I will clear the printer queue and print ALL documents again. The situation is ofcourse a bit more complex than it seems.

Will good prevail over evil? Join us again.. in the next episode of this 6 part trilogy of Printer Wars!

  • Lucky man!
    I've never suceeded in winning over a printer in less than 15 rounds.
    I hate computers. Hardware sucks. Peripheral equipment sucks most. Printers are the worst kind!
    • Well, I summarize a lot and IIRC I already mention this printer a few times before... So it's like shooting part 4 before part 1, 2 and 3.

      BTW another angle in this saga is how to trap the ribbon errors. Let's hope our hero can counter this problem in the next part of this trilling adventure..
