Yeah. Guy called me today about one of my listings, somehow thought a
printer I'd printed 60 pages on in the past two weeks might be new. I
think he was trying to trick me into lowering my price for him, based on a
price he saw on ebay for a printer without the necessary-and-not-included-
in-any-OS drivers and with 10x the usage. I told him more or less that he
could get the one for $50 less, buy the $20 driver CD from HP, and pay the
$30-50 for shipping, if he felt it was a better deal (which I guess he
did; he hasn't phoned back).

Oh well. I'm beginning to like it anyway (Laserjet 3100) even if it is
obscenely proprietary. Much lighter than my 4SIMX. :)
