Printers Were Sent From Hell to Make Us Miserable



Matthew Inman once again puts into comic form what we've all thought at one time or another. Has anyone ever been completely happy with their printer? Between the cost of ink, the difficulty of setting them up, and their reliability, it's a wonder anyone uses them anymore! Link -via Gorilla Mask

This reminded me of the also excellent and equally cathartic video "Your Printer is a Brat" from College Humor: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pQGtucrJ8hM

@Kev

The problem is, many printers are programs to requires all colours of ink register as full, before you can even tell it to print only black ink.

I'm glad I'm still in school. Free B&W printing ftw! I may get a B&W printer for my home, but I am SO not into printers that demand colour ink just to print a word document!

You think that is difficult?

Try hooking up an ascii printer to an ebcdic mainframe. Now lets say it is a parallel printer which means bridging it over windows so that windows doesn't stuff up the spool file. Now lets make it a programmable printer say a Zebra, Monarch or Intermec. Enjoy : )

Perhaps an IP printer that only works through a windows driver so you can't bypass windows easily. (I am looking at you Samsung).

Perhaps you need to learn PCL/PJL, HPSI, daemons, LPD/LPR....there are circles in hell that specialise in these forms of pain.

I hate printers.

ps: I think the multi-function devices have reached acceptability.
