printfest

yesterday i finally got frustrated with my inability to print at home, and bought a printer.

i have to say, printer technology has come a very long way since i last bought a printer in the mid-90's.

i got a photo-quality printer with separate tanks for each color that makes virtually no noise and spits out a page of text in about the amount of time it takes for me to turn my head from the computer screen to the printer.

how much was this astounding machine? $150.

it's starting to make me really love my cube, not just as a nifty museum piece, but as a highly functional desktop. it's zippy, the LCD monitor is bright and crisp, and hey, it prints! plus, the speakers sound pretty nice, and i can listen to xdu online whilst printing.

i've been wanting a printer for a long time, too. but i've got my eye on one of those portable bubble-jets... i'd love to be able to haul a printer along in my laptop case.

maybe someday... when trees stop falling on my house and my furnace no longer needs a constant vigil.

I splurged on a laser printer after the deck was published and I've never regretted it. It would be nice, though, to have a good color printer. We have one that's a few years old and isn't bad, but not great either.
