In college I had wierd income that it was hard to figure out if it was taxable or not. I downloaded the IRS document on education based tax deducions; it was over 100 pages. I bought turbo tax an hour later. The math isn't hard; it is figuring out what is tax deductable and what isn't that made turbotax worth it for me.

I feel like you haven't thought this through. The problem isn't you doing it. Because if the fed's knock on your door and say, "GIVE ME ONE GOOD REASON YOU WERE LOOKING AT THIS VIRUS!". You can say, it is my job. Conversation over. But, if I did it, because I find them interesting, _I_ have no legitimate reason to, so I'm a potential terrorist.

I don't understand it but clearly there is a market for wasting time and money to print at home.

Lets talk about it then. The resources you want to minize use of are "cost" and "time". It is faster to print a photo on my home printer than drive to a store, and pay them to do it unless I'm printing a lot. If I'm printing more than say 20 pictures, or picures of all different sizes, then it takes longer because of my paper feeder. Typically though I only want to print one or two of a picture to put in a picture frame or give to friends and family

But lets also talk cost. It's about 10c per picture in paper and another bit for the ink. That is about the same as my local shop depening on deals because their prices fluxuate and by bulk. I pretty much call it a draw there unless you catch them on a deal and buy in bulk.

That makes it about the time.
