Good Morning,  !
It's Thursday, June 2

Dimitris from Atlantic inkjet sent me a help request, that he 
had received, that might quaify for a bonehead award.

"I have filled my toner with inkjet ink and tried printing but only 
got blanks. I realised i should have used toner after what happened. 
Has this damaged my printer? what should i do now? i emptied the 
ink and left the toner out to dry.. 
Please let me know if my printer and toner are damaged?"
 
I doubt that any of you would squirt liquid bulk ink into a 
toner cartridge, but just in case you might be confused, 
never mix liquid ink and dry toner. That person ruined that 
cartridge, and mostlikely also the printer.

With Laser pinters your cost per page is 1/3 to 1/5 compared
to inkjet printers, but refilling laser toner cartridges is not just
a matter of dumping more toner into the cartridge. You also 
have to replace the extrortion chip, that the printer expects.
Without that chip, the printer won't "recognize" the cartridge.

The little chip probably costs about 49 cents to produce, but
IBM, HP, DELL, etc. who own the chip plants in China, want 
to make a certain amount per cartridge. Expect to pay around 
$10 per chip.

Personally, I just order ready to use cartridges from 
Atlantic inkjet .com, and let
them match colors and chips. The price is about the same anyway.

Have FUN!

"Hello?" A girl's voice came over the line. "Can I speak to Ben, please?" I live by myself, and my name definitely is not Ben. It was probably a wrong number and I was fed up with wrong number calls. There always eem to be more during times of full moon. "I'm sorry, he's not in right now. Can I take a message?" "Do you know what time he'll be back?" she responded. "I think he said he'd be home around 10:00." Silence on the other end...a confused silence. "Is this Steve?" My name isn't Steve, either. This was definitely a wrong number. "Yes, it is. Do you want to leave a message for Ben?" "Well...he said he would be home tonight and asked me to call him..." she said in a slightly irritated voice. I replied, "Well, he went out with Karen about an hour ago, and said that he would be back at 10:00." A shocked voice now: "Who's Karen?!" "The girl he went out with." "I know that! I mean...who is she?" "I don't know her last name. Look, do you want me to leave a message for Ben?" "Yes...please do. Tell him to call me when he gets home." She was sounding pretty irate at this point, and I could hear her temper flaring. "I sure will. Is this Jennifer?" She exploded this time. "Who's Jennifer?" Apparently she wasn't. "Well...he's going out with Jennifer at 10:00. I thought you were her. Sorry...it was an honest mistake." "Ben's the one that's made the mistake! Tell him that Alice called him and the she's Very Upset and that I would Like Him to Call Me as Soon As He Gets Home." I smiled and said, "Okay, I will...but Becky isn't going to like this..."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Steven Long, 23, in South Daytona, Florida Burglar carries 59" TV on bicycle SOUTH DAYTONA, Fla., June 1 (UPI) -- Police in Florida said they arrested a suspected burglar spotted carrying a 59-inch TV between his lap and the handlebars of his bicycle. Investigators said Steven Long, 23, was seen carrying the television set on his bike at about 4:20 a.m. Sunday in South Daytona and he fled when he spotted the officers, the Orlando (Fla.) Sentinel reported Wednesday. Long, who police said eventually abandoned the bike and the TV to flee on foot, was caught in a back yard and placed under arrest. Residents of a nearby home identified the television as having been stolen along with other items by someone who pried open the side door to their garage. Police said the property was returned to the residents, but the TV, worth more than $2,000, was damaged beyond repair. Long told officers the TV had been given to him by a friend to settle a debt but investigators said the story did not check out and he was charged with burglary of an occupied dwelling and felony theft.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Sharon Re: Substitute for CD drive Dear Webby, Dear Webby, I love your jokes today. Especially the bike riding because my granddaughter & her other grandmother have been riding their bikes & the plumber because of out local town plumber. His final comments on his answering machine message is "remember a flush is better than a full house". He is a character anyway. I have been having trouble getting my cd+rw drive to work. It won't open so I can transfer pics to it. I know the disks are fine because I have checked them out in the cd drive. I finally sent the pics by email to a friend who transferred them off to disk for me. 1) Is it possible that doing a system restore could help? It worked fine in Apr the last time I transferred off some pics but not in May when I tried again. 2) My pics are on cdrw disks that say 700Mb. If I should buy flash drives that are 4 Gb(?) how may disks approximately would fit on each flash? How hard is it to put them on flash drives? I am so happy that you are getting your strength back & able to get out & about. Thanks for taking time to share w/ us even when you were under the weather. Dear Sharon All CD drives do fail sooner or later. A 4 GB SD chip holds almost 6 times as much as a CD. You can also use the cheap 2 GB chips. They are compatible with more different devices than the 4 GB chips. You just drag the files to the chip, as if it was another folder on the computer. No burning or finalizing required. Befoer you switch over to SD chips, get a suitable cookie tin to store them in. They don't really need a lot of protection, but because they are small, they tend to get lost easily, if you don't have a designated place for them. Have FUN DearWebby

For months he had been her devoted admirer. Now, at long last, he had collected up sufficient courage to ask her the most momentous of all questions: "There are quite a lot of advantages to being a bachelor," he began, "but there comes a time when one longs for the companionship of another being -- a being who will regard one as perfect, as an idol; whom one can treat as one's absolute own; who will be kind and faithful when times are hard; who will share one's joys and sorrows." To his delight he saw a sympathetic gleam in her eyes. Then she nodded in agreement. Finally, she responded, "I think its a great idea! Can I help you choose which puppy to buy?"
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Use Soap When Sewing Canvas Sewing heavy materials like canvas can be as hard on the needle as it is on your hands. If, however, you rub the fabric well with soap before you stitch, the job will be a lot more comfortable and the needle will slip through the cloth without nearly so much danger of breaking.

I attended an oil exec convention once. The first speaker was from Texas. He rambled on for a good half hour and then introduced the next gent, who happened to be from Oklahoma. The Texas man said, "Oklahoma, an outlying province of Texas." The second speaker said, "Thank you, Mr. Smith, but, just to set the record straight, there ain't NO state that can out-lie Texas."
