People often wonder why printers are so cantankerous but frankly any device that embeds pigmented runes in the remains of long-dead trees is going to be stricken by an ancient faerie curse from the start
@Trashbang I have awful memories of printing sheet music on a dot matrix printer and watching it jam yet again when I am trying to get out the door to class. Ah, the good old days!
@Trashbang so printers are like the torture instrument in Kafka's "In the Penal Colony", but for slices of dead trees
this… certainly makes me look at them differently
@Trashbang This is the best explanation so far. God I hate printers!
i mean.... typewriters are pretty reliable.....
@Trashbang Damn, that was good.
@Trashbang wish I could fav this twice! So fun(ny)!
@Trashbang It's the moving parts -- lots and lots of 'em, which all have to fit just right and do one thing at exactly the right time.
@Trashbang well that explains it!
@Trashbang I just wish printer enchanters wouldn't use proprietary charms, and that they would let you refill the blood sacrifice cartridges yourself
