Stuff and Nonsense
February 4, 2011
ITEM: I’ve finally begun scanning a few comics using my new super swish (and cheap) all-in-one printer. It has so many buttons, flaps and levers there’s a chance it even plays DVDs. It is so big and bulky it may also have a dishwasher function.
However the fact that the purchase of this machine was necessitated because it cost less than a set of six new ink cartridges for my old printer still irritates me. If they wanted to seriously tackle waste and recycling they really should start with electrical equipment. When I first needed to copy sheets of paper for comic sales lists I used something very similar to this at school, with the appropriate lookout posted……
ITEM: On some other Blog they were talking about how difficult people were finding it to track down things on “Google” and similar search engines. There was nothing wrong with the search engines. It was that the users had no conception of spelling or how to search, often using text-speak or beginning with “you know” and ending with “like” in the search box itself. Amazingly many, many thousands just type “Google” into the “Google” search box every single day !!
