Who the flying crap would use Inkjet in favor of a Laserjet printer in that instance?

I'm sorry, i'd buy it, but I was just at the store buying a left-handed screwdriver.

Nah, I just need a print-out of the adult wiki.

I hope you bought the optional flood insurance for that screwdriver - That's one thing about those left-handed ones, they'll rust up in no time.

Also, make sure you keep it isolated from your right-handed ones.  If you get them too close together - VOOM!  You don't want to be anywhere near that when it happens.

They still have those guys? I thought they went the way of Dyson vacuum salesmen.

My CEO hounded me to find a solution to print up every page of our website so he could go through and make hand edits to send back to me. I tried to tell him why this was a terrible idea, but he insisted.

So I provided him with a 90MB, 13K page PDF and told him to have fun.

This week, I'm explaining why hyperlinks won't work on a 20 page guide if we print it and send it to our clients.

I don't know what you pay for inkjet cartridges in US but here (NZ) Chinese knockoffs have destroyed the business model.

For cartridges that used to cost nearly $NZ40, I now pay $2.80 each - colour or B&W

I run payrolls, use 4 inkjets and go through a box of paper a week, and the quality of ink is good enough - haven't bothered to check numbers, but price is so low I don't care
