There is a truism in computer circles that the device most likely to cause problems is the printer - even after all these years. Being away at the weekend, Gorse Fox switched off and powered down his printer and his computer. The computer is back up and working, but the printer will not successfully serve its prime directive. This has wasted several hours today as GF wanted to use it.
He has now given it a good talking to, and told it to sit in the corner and think about what it it wants to do with its life. He will give it until the weekend to pull itself together, then retry with a full re-install. If it fails to cooperate, then it will be put down.
