The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Neither tech nor support

Problem: Printer spits out 0.93 page (tractor-fed) in 17 seconds, then pauses 43 seconds before beginning the next 0.93 page.

Proffered solution: Reduce printer memory by one-third.

If this works, I'll start carrying extra anvils in the car to improve gas mileage.

Where did you read that? :-)

Read? I should be so lucky.

A major hardware supplier actually sent a tech to my office today to (1) reflash the printer EPROM and (2) reduce the printer memory from 12 mb to 8.

As Dave Barry is wont to say, I am not making this up.
