My printer is shooting blanks

I think the computer is trying to tell us something.

This page came out of my printer yesterday. It was the second page of a two page print job:

The top margin contained one line:

3/22/2010 – Print Full Page – MyRecipies

The bottom margin contains one line:…/recipefinder.dyn?… – 2/2

In between those two margins? Nothing but wide open space, baby!

Wouldn’t it be nice if your operating system detected such situations and popped up a preview window? “You are about to waste a tree. Do you really want to print this page?”

    1. I like the way you always seem to pinpoint the sentence I love the most! πŸ™‚


      1. Counter Culture Clown

        That’s ’cause it was the only funny sentence in the blog. πŸ˜‰

        I keed. I keed. Well, it was… but still.


  2. You know, that makes a hell of a lot of sense.

    It’s got no shot.


    1. I need to get into the habit of just printing page 1 of 2. Especially when in my web browser or when printing emails. 90 percent of the time page two is absolutely useless.

      If Microsoft ever includes my idea in Windows I’ll be calling them to feature me in their TV commercial about it. πŸ™‚


  3. I never really used the printer that came with my old laptop because it was always running out of ink and after watching it sit on the bookcase next to my new desktop, I decided to pay the $90 to get to replacement chartriges. The only problem is the feeder doesn’t automatically recognize and grab paper that’s in the tray, so I have to manually feed the first page of a document into the printer.

    I miss my college days when I could just go to the computer lab and print out a 30 page doucument in under a minute and no one said a word.


    1. Way back when I worked at Tektronix I had to walk the whole length of the building then go upstairs to the printer room to get my prints. By the time I got there my job would already be folded and sitting on top of the printer. πŸ™‚
