I'll be better able to figure it when the cartridge is empty. The savings come from not having to pay eight or ten bucks for copies that I'm proofreading.

They're already online as free e-books, HTML, and PDF, with printed copies available at a price.

IIRC you're Canadian (if in the US you'll need insurance) and should be able to get CrystaLens implants for an extra $2,000. They cure nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and cataracts.

I ran Suse back in 2003 and liked it, but moved to Mandrake because my TV didn;t like it; I was using the TV as a monitor with an S-video cable. Still trying to find a distro that will run on an old Gateway laptop.

I based the estimate on $5o for a cartridge that prints an average of 3,000 pages. A color laser would be nice, but as you say, far more expensive both in up-front costs and toner. And changing toner in a color printer is a PITA, at least the ones at work were.

Journal Journal: The Printer 5

(Illustrated version here)
After buying copies of books from my book printer, finding errors to correct, and giving the bad copies to my daughter who wants them, rather than discarding them I realized I was stupid. It would be a lot cheaper to buy a laser printer.
An inkjet wouldn’t work for me. The printer is going to be sitting idle most of the time, and inkjet nozzles clog; I’v

I think you're meant to go through the website, and download the images from there. The photography looks to be high quality, and fairly high resolution-- though not spectacularly so.

For example:

The Death of Socrates. Click on "download", and you'll receive a a 3811 × 2528 pixels JPEG.

Armor Garniture of George Clifford (1558–1605), Third Earl of Cumberland. You can download a 1457 × 1861 JPEG.

As far as metadata is concerned-- the EXIF contains a link back to the catalog page. Camera specific metadata has been stripped.

I'm not a Democrat, and almost always pick the Republican ballot on primary elections, but I'm not a Republican, either. I vote candidate, not party. Personally, I think we'd be screwed no matter who won the election. Clinton's government employment record is very close to Buchannon's (that might be a misspelling), the president who started the Civil War and is considered the worst president by most historians.

But I have to agree with the journal. He nailed it. Guess who profits by all that? Donald Trump, who once (before the crash) said he hoped real estate WOULD crash, because he could make a lot of money from it.

He's now in the position to actually do it.

Cervical cancer is virtually always (according to cancer.org) caused by an HPV infection. Effective prevention as part of healthcare is how you combat STDs like that, so yes, it seems reasonable to expect that poor healthcare will lead to increased cervical cancer rates.

Wired claims that Assange revealed his endgame some years ago.

Want to Know Julian Assange’s Endgame? He Told You a Decade Ago

Essentially, he believes that even though our system of government is based on an adversarial relationship between political parties, between defense lawyers and prosecutors; between plaintiffs and respondents, among candidacies of opposing viewpoints, participants (or in his parlance, co-conspirators), should not be allowed the privilege of discussing and formulating strategy out of earshot.
