That made me laugh quite a lot :p

Thanks!

But printers suck, I haven't owned one for a while. I just use work's when I REALLY need one :)

Haha I've seen this before but it's so true. Just the other day I was forced to replace my colour inks just so I could print in black and white.

I HATE laser printers that the toner sits ontop of the drums. Oki data printers is one of these. When you have to repalce the drum you right away lose 2000 pages worth of toner. OF course each toner cartridge is rathed for 11k pages and a drum is rated for 20k pages so you lose 2000 pages worth of toner when you replace the drum.

Yeah, printers have a lot of catching up to do with the rest of technology. I'm with IakobosJ -- I use the ones here at work that have a service contract when I need one!

So true! I hate when the printer stops to tell you to replace the one of the color toners just to print off black only. :angry:

That was really funny :laugh:

To be honest, I learnt my lesson back in 1996 and haven't bought a printer since. I could count the number of times that I subsequently wished I had a printer on one hand.

My one cat hates my printer. She refuses to let anything print from it. Just today I had to print a one page document, and she jumps on the tray and causes a paper jam. :p

The last printer i owned was a HP Color LaserJet 2600n - big heavy thing but it was awesome.

Now i don't have one anymore but my GF has one and man she be bitching about it too. It's almost exactly like they said in the graphic. At 3am the printer decides to start printing out some crazy text or blank papers. She have full ink tanks and paper is perfectly loaded but it's just not working! :angry: She was ready to blow a lid that day for sure! She has an injet too and I keep telling her to get a laser one cuz they suck her dry (pun intended) on injet cartridges! Them things die in like 200 prints/~2 months!

Hate these stupid things!
