Topic: Laser Printer Recommendation?
Replies: 24

I highly recommend the Brother HL 5250DN laser printer. I chose the 5250DN over the 2040 because the 5250DN offered duplex printing, faster printing, more memory for multiple font use and graphics, and network printing. I discovered that it came with the standard toner cartridge (3,500 pages) rather...

The Jane Austin Book Club

I just came across the trailer for a new movie called "The Jane Austin Book Club" that opens in the US in September. It looks as if a small group of attractive women gather to discuss Jane Austin, but what transpires is more a romantic comedy than a semi-formal discussion of English litera...

For those who, as you put it, vilify the cell phone, it may be that, that vilification actually covers a much broader spectrum, one in which the mobile is nothing more than a microscopic fiber in a tiny piece of thread woven into the warp or weft of the tapestry of Life, depicting a not too rosy fu...

A German newspaper announced today that T-Mobile will be carrying the iPhone in Germany starting in November. Carriers of the iPhone in other European countries were not announced. This should be good news for those of you living in Germany who want an iPhone. This is bad news, I suppose, for those ...

I like the iphone, though. And sometime mobile phones are helpful. Rare cases I think, and there may be other solutions. Maria According to your signature, Maria, you are living in Beppu, Japan. Beppu is famous for its hot springs (温泉). Have you tried them? Can you give us a brief rep...

Saturn used to do that for new car deliveries. Got the whole dealership together to applaud, took your picture and stuck it on their owner's board. For all I know, they still do. I thought it was pretty corny at the time, but yeah, it did leave the desired "we care about the customer" imp...

Thanks to all of you who expanded on how the toxic spread of fungus would conquer the annoying, ever growing, worldwide problem of cell phone usage. I didn't realize the extent to which cell phones attract such loathing.

arashi, I can understand your being taken with the store employees' applause if you enjoy it as a form of theatre. As someone who used to be involved in the production of theatre, I find it hard to forget that the store employees are being paid to simulate spontaneous enthusiasm. I agree, the appla...

But I wish every single cellular tower in the entire world were to somehow, irreversibly contract a fungus which causes them all to disintegrate into a fine powder. Attempts to ever reconstruct the cellular network would find this rampant fungus ready to bombard further constructions. I'm not clear...

I’m holding off on the iPhone now, but I will definitely buy one later on. I followed much of the hype during the week and the many videos and reports of actual purchase last night. One thing stands above all other impressions. I was totally taken by Apple’s policy to have all store employees—...

I learned touch typing in high school. The class was recommended if you anticipated having to type papers and reports later on in college. The only thing I remember about the class is that the female teacher led us in finger exercises at the beginning of the class for the first two weeks. We sat beh...

Scrivener on the iPhone?

Ha, Ha! Sorry. Just had to see that headline on the wish list. The hype over the iPhone is remarkable. Even my Windows friends know all about it. I realize that many Scrivener users live in Europe and won’t have a chance to purchase an iPhone until later in the year, even if they are interested. F...

Back up disk: I use Western Digital My Book Pro 500 GB, comes with Firewire 400 and 800 as well as USB 2.0. Was highly rated in MacWorld and Amazon. I bought it through Amazon for $220. Now comes in 750 GB. Works fine for me. Comes with Retrospect back up, but I threw that away in favor of SuperDupe...
