[rescue] semi-OT: HP EIO card configs?

I'm pretty sure they do, based on experience in the 90's with them: in the LJ4 with EIO card, there are *two* menu-configurable idle-timers, one in the printer, one in the card. When those two settings disagreed with each other in just the right way, chaos ensued (tremendous instability).

However, being HP, I wouldn't be surprised if plugging an already-configured EIO card into a printer that had not seen it before, may have the printer force reset the EIO config.

Best of luck,
