Guy who invented the printer: alright, dig this. im gonna make something so useful that it'll become essential for most people to use regularly, BUT its also gonna be the shittest, worst thing on earth
thanks for the history lesson
@garfiald also reminder that the entire Free Software movement was started because one guy was mad at printer drivers
it's been over 30 years and that's still the one thing nobody can fix
@garfiald 3D printers are working so hard to maintain the legacy.
@garfiald somehow i don't think Gutenberg said that
@garfiald i feel like this hasn’t been true for like a decade or more
@rotor wanna swap printers then
@garfiald no it sounds like yours is super bad, mine Just Works
@rotor i can't believe that youve descended among the ranks of us printer proleteriat only to mockingly rub your privilege in our faces
@garfiald i can’t believe i’m being called out as a part of the printer bourgeoisie what have i become
@garfiald if i was gonna pick the heir to the Shitty Technology Crown id probably pick IoT devices like internet light bulbs or some shit
@garfiald Guy who invented the printer: hmm this piece of shit is terrible but how can we make it even more annoying *bong rip* hey what if we made a full set of ink cartridges cost more than a whole ass new printer lol
I switched to laser printers specifically because I found a nice, relatively local company who specialise in DIY laser printer cartridge refill kits.
(It's someone's side business - their main one is providing educational materials to schools, and they got sick of buying new cartridges.)
@garfiald ink is cheap right?
john printer: oh sure
so will the printer ink be affordable
john printer: i was thinking more expensive than oil
@garfiald I felt this in my guts. I'm dying, thanks garf.
@requrious lmao my apologies
@garfiald no need now, I'm dead. Bring them to my tomb.
