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 3

(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 don't understand the constant "programming jobs are going away" comments. They're really not, and there are a lot of us in the US with a good salary.

In 2014 there were 1,114,000 software developer jobs. Projections are that it will grow 17% between 2014 and 2024, meaning we plan to add 186,600 jobs. Which, incidentally, is a much higher rate of growth than other jobs.

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.

Some highly paid people seem to not be very good at thinking straight... or at all.

This is personal to me. A friend I knew in high school, went into the service with, and kept in touch with couldn't afford insurance and caught appendicitis. It ruined his credit and nearly his family. In 1992 when he had a heart attack, he just laid down and died rather than calling 911.

That's what happens in the US when you work full time and can't afford insurance.

Journal Journal: Sixteen: The Final Chapter 2

It's that time of year again. The time of year when everyone and their dog waxes nostalgic about all the shit nobody cares about from the year past, and stupidly predicts the next year in the grim knowledge that when the next New Year comes along nobody will remember
that the dumbass predicted a bunch of foolish shit that turned out to be complete and utter balderdash. I might as well, too. Just like I did last year (yes, a lot of this was pasted from last year's final chapter).
