Exploding Printers

Spent the day running errands and preparing for dinner with Swanda who was kind enough to brings some packages from the apartment. When he moves next month I guess I’m going to have to build a package drop at the house. I’m really going to miss the free package service. Sigh.

A lovely steak dinner with a salad – which Swanda didn’t touch as he’d eaten a bag of lettuce as a salad for lunch. Just straight protein and a Bonny Doon Nebbiolo – man that was one tasty bottle of wine.

Another wine that is too expensive for everyday drinking ($45 retail). Sigh.

After Swanda retreated back to his place I installed a new magenta toner cartridge in the big printer with disastrous results….

What a mess to clean up… and now my vaccum clear intake is all magenta as well. Sigh.

    I have one like yours and with non HP cartridges it does the same thing. I need to get rid of it hasn’t been used in two years.

    Too funny — I’m looking at getting rid of mine and just using my 11×17 black and white printer when I need big docs — those OEM cartridges are just too damn expensive.
