Of Course, Life Is Not Perfect

So I mentioned at one point that I had received a shiny new printer for Mother's Day. The box said it was compatible with Mac OSX 10.5, which was good, because I'm at 10.5.8, and I'm not sure I can upgrade any farther. (This is an oldish computer.)

It turns out that the HP installer program for the printer drivers requires ... 10.6.

Oh, Hewlett-Packard, you so crazy!

Anyway, The Young Lady worked over her old printer, which is usually just sitting here collecting dust unless we need to make copies (she has a newer, smaller printer that she took to college), and made it work, and then helped me install the drivers for it on my system. So now I can print and scan using that. (I had been printing with a little Inkjet, but I had no scanner.) So that's what she gave me for Mother's Day.

There remains this lovely new large printer (with scanning and duplex printing). Either the Mr. will take it (in which case maybe we will try to move his current one down here for me - it's newer than the one that the Young Lady just fixed up), or the Young Lady will take it to school with her: she has more room now than she had her freshie year, when we got her the little printer.

I should list my Inkjet on the neighborhood listserv - it still works, and likely someone can use it (maybe for another kid who's off to college in the fall).

Ah thats frustrating! False Advertising! I would've called and complained and checked if there was nothing else they could've done. But glad you have a working scanner printer. Here in Australia it is cheaper to buy a new printer that comes with ink then buying new ink.... -__- so I don't own one, when I need to print I do it at work. :)

Ah, the joys of technology.
