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.

(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

The media refuses to cover peaceful protests?!?? Seriously? They report every single day since inauguration about a protest somewhere, but most of them completely fail to mention the burning police cars, burning limousines, smashed business windows, and people being drug out of their cars and getting the shit beat out of them. Or if they do it's a passing mention. There's absolutely shit that isnt getting reported, but it isnt the the peaceful protesters.

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.

And then what kind of hack creates, and what other kind of hack fails to edit a /. summary that fails to mention a move like MS is making was (according to the article) targeted specifically at the Chrome education sector that desires the ability to lock down devices. That's a very key factor in this discussion that wasnt mentioned by the submitter or caught by the editors.

I agree that the hypocrisy is ridiculous. But singling out Trump as a prime example is just as ridiculous. We could collectively produce 100's or even 1000's of examples of politicians doing precisely that over the course of the last decade on both sides of the aisle, and do so on topics a hell of a lot more consequential than the number of people who attended an event. In the grand scheme that particular little nugget is absolutely meaningless. It's as significant as Trump literally saying his shit doesnt stink. Who cares?! Does it effect my taxes? Domestic policy? Foreign policy? Civil rights? Growing violence? Perception of law enforcement? No. It means nothing at all, and spending the inordinate amount of time on it that the press and Trump opposition seems vested in spending just boggles the mind. I mean seriously, even if you say its evidence that the man is willing to bold-faced lie to you, if that one example is really the biggest example you can verify then we're far better off than with the last administration or the one before it that bold-faced lied about PEOPLE DYING. Did the lies about Benghazi not mean something signicantly more? Or the lies about fast and furious? Or the IRS and how they "lost" all the data that they "found" and were ordered to keep? Or the lies about how many mobile devices Hillary used? Or "weapons of mass destruction" in Iraq?

My problem is the total lack of perspective, and the apparent psychosis to latch onto something that is as unimportant as what comes out of narcissistic garbage spewing from elitist self-aggrandizing dipshits in Hollywood and yet held with such inflated importance.
