I'm sure there's a midpoint somewhere.  I you use too little ink, you're
paying for ink you're not using.  If you use too much, you're paying way
more for ink than you would've for the printer plus 3rd-party ink.  I
didn't sit down and do the math, but there has to be a happy medium

$employer got thoroughly shafted over it, though.  Not surprising, given
his level of economic clue[0].
