There are many scenes that I love from the movie Office Space, but this has to be one of my favorites (UNCENSORED). Though they didn’t show the brand, I’m sure, based on my recent experiences that this had to be an HP printer. If you’ve not scene the movie, these 3 software developers were extremely frustrated with this printer because it always gave errors whenever they tried to print. PC Load Letter? WTF does that mean???!!! ~Michael Bolton – Office…

I almost had an Office Space moment the other day. If any of you have seen the movie, Office Space, you’ll probably recollect the scene when the employees get to take out their revenge on the printer that had been giving them so much trouble in the office. Beware: The link is the uncut version. NSFW (Not Suitable For Work) 😀 I wanted to go all Office Space on my printer the other day. I wanted to print a few…

This one, I really like. On the screen, it looks magnificent. However, it is teaching me a few…

Just when I think that I know what’s going on with the printer, it jumps up to bite me and make me “waste” paper and ink on learning … the hard way. Honestly, I’m not like my son, Tony, I’ll listen to suggestions. I don’t need to learn everything the hard way. I don’t. 😀 So, in preparation for some more frames, I printed out a number of prints that I intended to hang. Printed them on 13 x 19″…

McDowell – Reaching peak colors I do my best to keep an open mind about things; however, I do have certain things that, let us say, don’t change so easily. One of them is paper. From way back in the day, I liked to have good contrast and deep blacks on my photos. So, in the darkroom, I used Poly Contrast paper and used the appropriate filters to make the photos pop. Regarding surface textures, I started with glossy, but…
