Huh?

I can't vouch for the quality, but this laser printer is only $99. If you are worried about quality, the lower-end HP's go for around $150-$200 . . .


Edit: Oops . . . Deb found one before I could finish my post.

Yeah, when I priced them 3-4 years ago they were in the $200's-$400's, so I figured they would be cheaper by now

Now is http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...category=51327 this a good idea? (Refill kit). Where do you get your refill?

I've always just bought new cartriages . . . I don't print enough on my home printer to really need a refill kit (I'm on my second cartiage in 6-7 years ).

You know . . . I knew something didn't look right, but I couldn't figure out what it was (and I couldn't be bothered to look it up. ) Thanks for the correction.

Not sure where I got the idea to use an "a" though . . .

So it's $70 for 3000 pages. I pay $3 for my B&W cartridges for my Canon S750, so $70 / 3 = I can get 23 cartridges for that price. Now to print the same number of pages each one has to last me 130 pages. How can I find out without going through a cartridge how many pages it should approximately print?

According to this page, you should get around 420 pages from each color cartridge and 750 pages from the black cartridge. Now I can't say how accurate those estimates are, but I can say that I now know how to spell the word "cartridge".

A columns-sortable + block-editable text editor, such as Unix-based Textpad. Hyperlink directly from your document to your default browser. I use it every day and am continually impressed by how powerful it is, and without sucking down my RAM. I never go shopping without it. It flies.

TextPad rocks . . . I've been using it for years. It's regex based search and replace functionality is awesome.

Do you know talemyn, I am so dependant on Textpad by now that my browsing experience would be miserable without it.

I'm an avid reader, and I have a long list of OOP hardcovers that I'm always shopping for on Half.com. I bounce between the text listing I have stored in Textpad, and my browser, every few days to rifle through something like 50 book titles on Half.com in under an hour.

There isn't room to list everything it does. BLOCK SELECT mode. Is that awesome or what?! I can almost ditch my database program altogether, Textpad is so powerful. Glad to see another fan.
