    I just went Office Space on my Lexmark x2470 "All-in-one" printer.

    It made chuckling noises at me whenever it was plugged in and has not printed in 6months. I bought a new ink cartridge the other day and wasted $25 on the cartridge when the printer simply would not work.

    I should clarify myself, the software for the printer was so terrible that I just printed 7 test pages, but in order to align the printer, the software requires that you scan the sheet. Apparently the scanner portion of the all-in-one didn't work, so under no circumstances would the printer allow me to print anything other than test pages.

    It felt so good to put my foot through it and then walk it out back and slam it around the garbage can for a couple minutes.

    Who needs anger management when you have things to break?

    Not me.

    Yes!!

    Beating it just felt so much better.

    Also it prompted me to take some pictures of my car. I've had it two years and never taken pictures before, but nick's persuasion reminded me that I could easily upload stuff with the camera on the blackberry.

    I wanted to throw it really hard, but since the glass for the scanner broke I didn't want glass throughout my yard.

    I still have visions of throwing it against the wall and watching it explode.

    Ink jet printers are 100% consumer rape.

    They sell a cheap ass printer, and sell ink cartridges for $20+ each that last for maybe 50-75 pages.

    Laser printer ftmfw. Home versions have 1500-4500 copies per cartridge and when it runs out, you're out $60. The toner never dries out or needs alignment or fucks up. It just works.

    Home color lasers are getting more and more affordable. A half decent one can be had for $350ish now.

    Fuck an ink jet!

    We had a HP laser since about 1992 at the house. Paying $70 for the cartridges sucked but it did last for awhile and printed far higher quality.

    When I bought my HP laptop they gave me the lexmark.
