Think I just startled her. I could care less if someone wants to turn around in my driveway, but whenever I do it the fact that I might be annoying the homeowner does cross my mind.

Got my first vaccine dosage on Sunday, at the Javits. Was weird being there not for Comic Con but pretty well run operation.

That's great. I get my 1st dose next Friday. Our bldg mngmt has arranged to do them, here, in our bldg. I was sure I wouldn't be eligible to get one until my group came up sometime in the summer.

Any printer suggestions? Haven't owned one since the 90's. No clue what the hot brands are/which brands to stay away from. Don't need anything special, as I'll only print a few times a year.

Laser always, unless photo printing is an absolute.

B&W too unless you want color, I have a Multi Function Brother printer at home. You pay more upfront (vs inkjet) but the toner goes further and lasts longer.

Multi function:https://www.amazon.com/Brother-Monochro ... B0763ZCH7K

HP has some solid ones too.

^^ As mentioned, get laser. Depending what your needs are lasers can get pricey but there are reasonable options. Cartridges go way further (thousands of pages) on a laser than an inkjet. Usually lasers will come with a 1/4 or 1/2 full cartridge to get you going. Where I work we use HP brand and have about 30-40 in use. Some of those get very high volume of printing and they are good printers. We've tried other brands and they don't hold up like the HP's.

If you literally print like 1 page a month then you can get by with an inkjet. lol

Get an All-in-one or Multi-functional printer. I get the printer/scanner because I scan docs to email. I only use HP inkjet because I print on fabric sheets a lot and the colors are a dye in lieu of ink. You can pick one up for $100 or less at the big box stores.

P.S. Pay attention on whether the printer is bluetooth or not and if your pc will accommodate bluetooth tech.

Until the cartridge jets dry out because you never use it!

+100 for a laser printer

There's usually adequate knockoff toner you can buy on Amazon for Brother or Canon laser printers as well, which saves a ton of dough in the long run.

Why do they call “skeptics” those who believe in utmost batshit conspiracies? What are the “skeptics” skeptical of? Reality? Well, there is another name for that, and more than one, and “skeptic” isn’t one of them, I am sure.
