When I ‘Rage against the Machine’ the machine is usually a printer.

Worst Thing Ever
I have a 13yrs old laser printer that still meets my needs, which are printing 2-3 times a year
Actually, I have never heard anybody say "nom nom nom" while eating – it's more like "num num num" I think. Rhymes with "yum"
I hate printers!!!
I support software, and I can do just about anything on a computer; Hook up webcams, install new hardware, fix a monitor's resolution or things like that.
When it comes to printers… I just give up. if I can't just plug you in, click print in whatever program I'm using and get solid print options… I don't want it. I will get someone else to print. I've had NIGHTMARES with printers.
Agreen 100% +Amanda Blain
The newer printer costs almost nothing..but the upkeep.."more grey ink"…I've gone back to an old HP (very old HP)
Funny tech story: My wife said she would like her iPad a lot more if she could install a certain program, but it kept stopping her. I asked what program? She answered: Adobe Flash (true!)
Be careful!!! Nasty h4x0rz will make your printer 'asplode if you don't patch.
I dont even… We cant even type sentences anymore? Ugh.
There are exactly 2 things that have disappointment me about the 21st century… Its 20 fucking 12 and we dont have prevalent use of jetpacks, or working home printers.
To be fair, we had working printers 21 years ago…maybe not HOME printers back then, but by the late 90's after HP had mastered engineering obsolescence into products, you could get a rock-effing-solid LaserJet III for a low price and use it at home. I swear I've seen some still working to this day; finding the toner/cartridge/thingys is probably a bitch tho. About the time that the consumer grade ColorJets came out, all home printer users were doomed.

(I dare you to try to pronounce it)
ok whistles innocently .. i pronounced
I should have kept my tank of an OkiLaser (really OkiLED) OL400 from the late 1980s. If I could get cartridges and if I could get the memory expansion. Everything I've had since then has been utter paper-jamming ink-drying-out toner-wasting weaselware.
We have had great experience with Konica-Minolta color lasers. Would highly recommend. and they support Linux, too!
PC LOAD LETTER
+Sunil Pratap Singh so you think you're sneaky, hm? 😛
I ams printing, will tell you after 200 business cards I am outs of cyan… mwahaha.
am I the only one who has a "soundtrack" for these moments? A bit like Ally McBeal had her dancing baby? Every time I've got some trouble with computers, this song starts to play in my brain:
John Paul Young – Love Is In The Air (1978)
Ya know that movie office space, that is what I want to do to my print currently
robots(motors, moving parts) with memory and memory storage that understand human written language(postscript), who we armed with lasers over a decade ago? For gods sake +Amanda Blain don't anger them until we're ready to make our move.
The original from +Matthew Inman (the Oatmeal).
Printers are a menace
its true printer is hungry for paper
Someone should make a animated short about a war between prints and trees
+Jeff Pettorino bad enuf people txt while driving cars. Imagine if they had jetpacks! The secret is that jetpacks really exist, but are only available in areas with no interweb.
