Oh dear

I got roped into running the office sweep for todays Melbourne Cup.
No probs.
But, there is now an amount of angst re who came last.
I've paid out on Verema who broke down and didn't finish. (and has now been killed)
But, Ruschello was last across the line.

I think I've gone out early on this one.

Got a HP Officejet printer scanner connected to a 4 port DLink Wireless router that also has 3 pcs connected (not connected to each other but it is possible). They can all print directly and have 2 laptops can print via wireless as well.

Negative or slide scanners available from Jaycar or Big W

As others have said the replacement ink cartridges can be expensive and sometimes it is cheaper to just get another full unit with its supplied ink.

Personally, I prefer a laser printer.
Inkjet printers tend to have a limited shelf life, carts are small and not cheap. Also in a past life I had to fix a library's inkjet years ago, bloody terrible things.

Bought an HP multifunction printer, though it's a few years old now. Has network connection, not wireless, but connects to wireless router. A4 printing, scanning and copying (both colour and B/w). Has usb/sd/cf slots for direct printing. has separate cartrigges (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black).
I don't do a heap of printing, but the carts lasted probably 5 years, down side is the carts are $90 each.
Have been happy with this, not sure what the latest version of this one is.

Double feed prevention roller and/or pad.
In cheap printers the pad is often in the lift tray.
Clean with isopropyl alcohol and adjust if required.
Fan the paper. The cheaper the paper the more you need to fan.

Ink v Laser. Cartridges for both are relatively expensive. (except on eBay) Print quality with ink relies more on good quality paper. There are 2 types of ink. Water based and alcohol (or other solvent) based. If you want photo quality prints then you can't beat a good quality non water based ink printer. But for business style printing then laser is the go. Laser printers are generally faster.

Anyone bought ArtisanState's "Little Black Book" Photobooks?

I am interested in their Little Black Book. Has anyone had one made, please post your comments re:

Ability to layflat for displaying double page landscape photos,
Binding quality,
Colour matching
Overall quality,

How long did it take from your order to receipt of the book in Australia and which shipping service did you use?

See below as quoted from their website:

"How fast do books ship?

Standard: 8-12 business days
Priority: 5-7 business days
All time estimates include order processing, book manufacturing and delivery."

Cheers

Noticed it's a bit dry up that way Lentil, well around the top end of the Hunter valley / Merriwa anyway,
Got to the 'Thunder' finally, interesting road from Merriwa to Willow Tree over the range, couldn't work out why the woman @ the servo said "two hours over that road, two&half via Scone [extra 70kms!]",
soon found out why the difference, very interesting on a road bike over the bare rock sections.
Cheers

It never rains here either Leith I have never seen it so dry and I have to hand feed the animals now.

Just went outside & waved the African Rain Stick @ the setting sun for you blokes that are in dry way,
Knowing my luck, it'll flood here and not where it's needed
Ah well, as long as it rains somewhere north of here will do
Cheers

Good one Baz. You do know that the forecast is for rain here this weekend anyway? Probably going to need to buy a boat now
