Today, I helped a friend with the moving, lifting and carrying required to update his daughter's house. We moved a bathtub into the house from my favorite place, Manard's. Plumbing came next then a quick ride home. We didn't work too long so I have some time for 'Daily Rambles'.
I have been learning about printer cartridges. For the last six years, I have been running my 'free' IJ300 Compaq printer with color cartridges. Lately, I switched to a rebuilt cartridge sold by Wal-mart under the brand, Nukote, It is a simple black cartridge but it cost only $18.00 while the color version is about $35.00. Great so far. When I tried it out, I got a double print. The page was useless. What could be wrong. Ah ha, Sue had used the printer to produce a picture she was painting. She's the culprit. I don't know why but.. she did it. More inspecting. She didn't do it. I had to reconfigure the printer to print black and white. With that done, I had no problem except. Except, I run my printer on a computer connected to a network. It turns out that other computers on the network used different copies of the driver. One can be set to black and white while the other is good for color. I was quite proud when I figured all this out. All is well now and I am having a great day.
