New printer

October 28th, 2006 at 05:47 am

My old Epson has given up the ghost and the man at the shop informed me that kind is no longer being produced. I thought i would have to spend at least $100 for a new one, but a friend of mine had just updated his Canon because he wanted all sorts of fancy features, and offered me his old one for $30. I have just installed it and feel like a computer genius.

only purchases today
ink cartridge nz8.00
bananas for lunch nz0.50

I did a little paint scraping and now have nearly cleaned one window. I spent most of the afternoon knitting. I am giving homemade gifts this year - hats and scarves. I have a TON of yarn in my stash and am not allowing myself to buy any more for 12 months. It's silly to keep on buying new stuff when I'm not using what I've got.

    Printers have really come down in price. I was very surprised when I replaced mine.

    I know what you mean about feeling like a computer genius. I felt that way when I replaced my virus program!

    I wish I knew someone who would sell me their old printer.

    I just picked up a new one for $99 USD. It's a Canon iP4300. While it's not the cheapest printer out there, it's fairly good if I wanted the capability of printing decent images, which I did. I've always been a fan of Canon's individual ink tanks. That way, I'm at least not wasting any ink, even if print per pages on inkjets tend to be a bit high.
