We have a printer at work that’s slowly dying.Â The manual feed tray is held in place by a rubber mallet wedged in place between the printer and a desk.Â It prints like a stuttering autistic person, should one page fail, the whole project starts anew, usually to stop again at roughly the same point.
At first I thought this was the cacophonous swan song of a dying workhorse but there may be a typographic labor movement afoot. I was printing a document today and it jammed, not too odd except for I was printing to a PDF file. I suspect the work printers have combined forces with the print drivers and are unionizing. This wildcat strike that has been masquerading as a device problem is only the first wave. I must break the back of this printer-tariat (good one, eh?) uprising before the fax machine and the plotter jump on board.
