Re Printers:

The majority of us have conditioned ourselves to believing we need a printer. The majority of us don't. Unplug and throw away and do it today.

Re Sturgeon:

She is marmite. So many like her, so many don't. Her predecessor was the same. So just like you need to be an Arsenal fan these days to lead the Labour Party to lead the SNP you need to be liked and disliked in equal measure.

Like a fool I usually end up doing it, and regret it every time.

Next time I go to print something my PC seems to have lost connection with the printer (usually when I'm in a hurry to print something) and have to go through the whole wi-fi/password/connection finder diagnostics before they talk to each other again.

Never quite sure after all this I ever seen any difference in anything... I mean it's a printer... what can they improve/update, other than making the ink run out quicker!

I had an Epson printer. It was shit as a printer, was literally drinking the ink.

Bought an HP laser jet. Really happy with it at the moment.

Minimal hassle. Use the old Epson as a scanner.

Hmmm. What you have is two posters saying that they have moved from admiring Sturgeon and liking her, to the exact opposite. To my knowledge people don’t generally start off liking marmite and then stop, so I’m not too sure the analogy will do.

ExiledStirling 10-05-2021 08:17 AM

If you MUST have a printer buy laser unless you are happy to buy ink priced at $8 000 per gallon.

But, yes, I agree... generally speaking printer technology is in a bit of a rut.

I think the problem is there is so much cheap rubbish about. If you spend a bigger wedge you get better quality, but the market seems to demand cheap printers initially for odd jobs and small quantities, and the business model is to give you a crappy printer for next to nothing and then fleece you when you want to put ink in it. Probably a lot of them go in the bin at this point.

As Stirling says, get a decent laser job.

The trick is to get on a decent ink subscription package. Inkjet printers use ink to clean the heads, and there’s no point paying for that

We use this and save quite a bit of coin

Yes, that's a good shout actually. It's all very well saying "get a laser printer" but the expense isn't inconsiderable and some people do actually need to do printing and don't have hundreds of pounds to shell out for a dozen pages a month. For us, the lockdown school arrangements and WFH make it a requirement (my work is all paperless on a corporate VPN but Mrs F can't avoid printing).

Maidstoned Eagle 10-05-2021 12:59 PM

Ive got an old HP printer, had it for years. Still works fine. Maybe you lot are just plums with technology?

ceeby 10-05-2021 01:40 PM

I've just brought an Epson Ink Tank printer. A bit more pricey to buy (although got mine nearly new from eBay for half price) much cheaper on supplies, prints up to A3 and has a photo black ink reservoir for photos. No more worrying about cartridges running out after 50 pages. Inks are viewable in windows and can be brought for about around £35 a set which is good for around 8000 pages.

A Wooden Fish On Wheels 10-05-2021 01:52 PM

I use an HP Printer / Scanner / FAX (whatever the latter is) but can claim the Ink through work.

I don't print very much at all but it is really handy for when I do need to - not being in the office and all that. No, I use it far more for scanning which is much better than trying to take pictures of documents with your phone.

Oldtown Eagle 10-05-2021 02:45 PM

I have an HP printer and need to download scanner drivers but I not really sure how to or if it will cock the printer up.

Go on to the HP printer support page and type in the model number and see if it lists drivers or software for your model. An 'exe.' file will open up in to an installer and a 'zip.' file needs unzipping first into an installation file.

I had an HP printer which I bought back in 1993 and it worked for about 15 years. They were excellent in those days. No jams, no blotting, built like a brick ****house and no driver problems despite the primitive internet of those times. Not so much now (although my laserjet is HP and pretty decent). This business of making them cheap and nasty and making most of their profit on ink came later.

Sky and their terrible customer service

You should try BT. BTW, one of the things that gets up my nostrils is that Sky and BT are constantly at war with each other over the rights to sports channels. A few months ago I turned on the TV to try and watch a football match that was on Sky Sports, for which I had a two-year subscription via BT TV. I've been watching this way for 18 months, but this time, instead of getting football, I got a message that said words to the effect of:

"Good news! Now you can (translation: have to) access Sky Sports content on your BT TV box using Now! TV." (Editor's note: based on all previous experience Now! TV are absolute shite). "To access your new (translation: same old) sports content select OK". Selecting OK results in a screen asking me to sign up to a further two-year minimum term with Now! TV at an increased price. So I phone up, surely there is a way I can get back the content I used to watch before this "great news" came along without having to start a whole new contract and minimum term, isn't there? The bloke in the call centre assures me that there is, but in the course of a phone conversation lasting an hour and involving two spells on hold and a chat with his supervisor, he cannot for the life of him tell me WTF it involves.

Then they wonder why people use third-party streams and VPN IP-address spoofing services to avoid having to contract with them.

**** that for a game of soldiers.

Better still half wit TV reporters outside court asking people on trial questions. "Did you kill your wife Mr Smith ?". The commercial Tv ones are the worst but ABC is getting there.

People who stand behind live news reporters and either hold banners up (and then repeatedly move from side to side to keep getting in shot) or who shout incoherent rubbish.

Whilst I might have some sympathy with some of their viewpoint it is distracting and annoying. I want to concentrate on what is being sent.

PalaceForever 11-05-2021 03:18 PM

People that park inconsiderately in busy residential areas where parking spaces can be limited. For example:

- Parking at the end of a row's bay and leaving 5 ft between the end of your car and the end of the parking area.

- Parking in the middle of a two car space, instead of pulling up closer to the parked car in front or behind.

My daughter obviously tired herself out slamming doors and stomping around the house, that's the only reason I can think of why she couldn't manage to put her dirty socks into the washing basket tonight, it must have been at least 1ft away.

Last year a friend of mine was having problems with his daughter and her refusal to put her washing in the basket. One day all her school friends were around and they were just about to go out, when he shouted down to her from the top of the stairs and said "I think you forgot something." He then proceeded to tip all her dirty clothes down on top of her. Her friends were hysterical with laughter as all her credibility as the rebellious teen quickly evaporated.
Of course they went home and told their parents what the crazy Irish guy did to his daughter. He soon became a cult figure to all the parents around the neighborhood who come up to him at Parents meetings telling him they wish they had the guts to do that, but would be scared that their little loved one might sue them.

When my youngest was a teenager he was so lazy he put a lot of his clean ironed stuff back in the wash basket as he could not be arsed to put it in draws and wardrobe. FF he turned out ok.:)

We had an HP Instant Ink subscription as the first 12 months were free with the printer. Typically, during the free period we didn't print much, but almost at the same time as we started having to pay Mrs Statto started up as a childminder so needed to print policies & other paperwork for parents, and my younger daughter started her A Levels and often needed to print off worksheets etc. The trouble was the inconsistency - some months we printed 20-30 pages, other months it was 150-200 - meaning the right package was almost impossible to work out. I ended up cancelling and buying compatible cartridges - at least that way I'm in control of what we spend, and always have a spare available too

Absolutely.

The timings still coincide with BC and AD though. We haven't had a new calendar for over 400 years, so a new one is long overdue. How about BPL and APL (Before/After Premier League)?

Has she got empty suitcases in the garden all facing in the direction of Tijuana? Mexican drones will assume the Hedgehogs are going to make that their destination. But history will tell us that they actually just jumped on a knock down Delta flight and enjoyed a romantic autumn holiday on the brisk beaches of Bognor Regis.

Get fvcked Jeff. Yes, you heard that right.

Or Sky Sports presenters advertising another hilarious new comedy coming up on Sky One immediately after the game finishes. It's a football match. Just advertise the football.
That helmet Redknapp actually asked the presenter the other day if the film she's just advertised was "any good" like it wasn't some pre-rehearsed banter.

That Luton and Gatwick Airports are officially London Luton and London Gatwick. Why?

I was going to say, where are your back nuts? Haemorrhoids? (and of course I had to google the spelling).

Its a crafty way of deceiving unsuspecting people ,probably foreigners, that Gatwick and Luton are near London not realising that they are over 30 miles away.

You can't beat Lydd aerodrome for trying though! Approximately 57 miles from central London I'll will be waiting for the HS 1.5 rail link from Ashford along the Dungeness branch line announcement sometime soon?

Obviously Heathrow is not in London but you can get there much quicker from the designated centre of London than you can get to London City (which is actually in London)

In other London not London airport related news there was a massive fight with a load of people arrested and hospitalised at Luton airport yesterday. The queues for Wizz Air flights can get proper rowdy.
