    Forum Software Changes

    @Nifty I see there are some changes with the forum software. Particularly noticeable to me are the changes to the posting controls. Will we be able to customize the controls as we like? Oddly, since first seeing these changes, the Smiley, Quote and Media buttons are now on the bar instead...

    Printer Smarter Than Realized

    I have a Canon Maxify MB5120. Every time you open the paper tray, such as to add paper, the printer wants you to "register" the newly added paper to make sure the paper settings in the printer match the paper you just added. I wondered if I could outsmart the Maxify registration process by...

    What Old Ink Can Do

    Before starting the story, let me say the vendor of the ink is at zero fault. The ink was at least 9 years old and in a capped squeeze bottle for a least 4+ years and maybe double. Also, the images are crap, taken with a Kindle under less than ideal conditions. But, they convey the story...
