Printer n Earthquake

No, there's nothing related between the two items in the title.

If I had known that buying a printer would make my life much easier I would have bought it much earlier. In order to print something in my office, I have to copy the document or any other file into a diskette and then take it down to the main office. Open it up from a computer there and then print it out using our office printer. We used to have a network connection but printing over the network was stopped after a few technical problems – the printers would go on printing junk endlessly wasting a lot of paper. The experts said that it was due to a virus but I am not so sure.

After putting it off for a long time I finally bought a printer for myself- the Xerox Phaser 3121 from the Mac City outlet at Amcorp Mall. It’s a monchrome (only prints in black and white ) personal laser printer and costs RM599/. The output is quite fast, printing 16/17 pages per minute. The 600 dpi resolution is nothing to shout about but good enough for /most of my printing jobs which are MS Word document files.

They also claim that it is compatible with Samsung laser cartridges, which by the way much cheaper than Xerox’s. I checked out the Samsung site and realized that the Samsung ML-1510 was an exact copy of my Xerox printer. I was in quite a hurry and forgot to ask them to chop the warranty form. So far so good and hope nothing goes wrong in the future.

I guess everyone is blogging about yesterday’s earthquake. I wasn’t even aware of it until I read about it in Kah Soon’s Blog. I was still working last night when the Earthquake happened. I suddenly felt dizzy and decided that it was my body’s way of telling me that it was time to rest. I had also gone swimming in the afternoon. And I promptly drifted off to sleep.

Really feel sorry for the family of those who died.
