Leon Brocard (aka acme) is an orange-loving Perl eurohacker with many varied contributions to the Perl community, including the GraphViz module on the CPAN. YAPC::Europe was all his fault. He is still looking for a Perl Monger group he can start which begins with the letter 'D'.

  • Answers to your three questions: money, money and money. All three of those features are available if you are willing to pay for them.
  • If I need to print something, I email it to myself, then go to Kinko's or someplace similar and use the facilities there. There are several advantages if you don't have to print more than a couple times a month:

    • You don't run the risk of mucking up your computer by installing questionable 3rd party software on it (or more importantly wasting your time dealing with the situation)
    • You don't have to deal with getting taken to the cleaners for ink cartridge replacement (which nowadays ship with timer chips ma
  • I've been shopping for printers a couple of times the last months and I noticed that at least ethernet isn't a "high end" feature anymore.
