Another taste of life outside Davetopia
Dave likes reading, and considers it an essential skill (good :D).

Here's a well timed and fun article on some of the work that goes into making readable things.

I don't even remember when I last had a paper jam. Must be better printers as well as buying better paper. There used to be a wire that needed cleaning ever so often (or was that laser printers)? My best/worst memory of printers was when I used a fax machine to copy what was intended to be 40 pages. The output feed roller melted. Nice paper jam ensued.

As a high school secretary, a lot of my day could be taken up with a paper jam or 1000. Wet weather makes the color paper curl something horrible.
I loved our repair guys though! :)

Fuck I do. I probably print 250 sheets a week.

Technically I do. I print about 1 large format piece every few months. (I should do it more often to keep my printer in use), and that's about it.

Here's one of the latest pieces I've printed at 20x30".

Not bad for a city slicker. :D

Thanks. I enjoyed it, but it was time to move on.
