Web Heroes

The Internet is so brilliant, especially in David versus Goliath situations. Canon have a built-in obsolescence trick in their printers where, after a certain length of time or useage, their machines send up an "Ink absorber almost full" and then "Ink absorber full" message. If you ring them about it, they tell you to buy a new printer. Meanwhile, if you go online, all these great fixit guys tell you how to reset your printer and get it working again. Hurrah for the little guys and boo to the corporation! I've just done it and I'm back in business with a perfectly fine printer. (As you can tell from the post below I am having techno difficulties these days. It was a lot easier when I just worked on a typewriter, but then again, a lot slower.)
