My Canon printer has finally worn out, by which I mean I can hear nothing but the gears skipping as it tries to initialize. It's been coming for a while, so it's not a surprise, but it is annoying.

Anybody out there got recs for a good all-in-one printer/scanner, preferably ink jet, preferably with separate color cartridges, preferably not over $150? Oh, and it has to talk to Windows 7 :)

ETA: Found an HP 6830e on the Fry's website, and it's marked down from $180 to $100, and it looks very tempting. May stop by and have a look at it...

So, there's RPS of the Oregon Militia occupying the bird sanctuary --

Bundy Militia Slash

Really. You have to go read it.

I've been doing my research and talking to people and from what I can tell the audio quality on Samsung and iPhone are about the same, so I guess it comes down to bells and whistles...

My choices, still going with the VirginMobile plan I'm happy with, have narrowed down to:

Samsung Galaxy S5 or iPhone 6

Pros? Cons? Opinions of any sort welcomed :)

ETA: After doing more looking (and checking my finances), I ended up going with the Motorola Moto G, yeah, not one of the original options, but works with the same plan and costs $300 less, but thanks for all the help with the decision making!

I don't know if anybody is watching The Player (Thursdays, NBC), but it amuses the hell out of me that the main character has the same name as the gay avenging hero written years ago by my favorite pornographer (John Preston) in his The Mission of Alex Kane series. Also, I freely admit my inner shallowness of watching Philip Winchester run around chewing the scenery.

They've got a street date for the release of the full series of "The Sentinel", the best/worst "pre-slashed for your ease and convenience" show ever *G*

Looks like a Sept 22 release date

Seen on a Castle re-run -- his laptop screen saver types out: You Should Be Writing over and over again...

Remember The Sentinel, the show so bad (and yet so slashy) it sparked tons and tons of fanfic? The show they never released on dvd (except for S1 which is now OOP)?

Looks like they're finally going to release the whole show...

Is it too late for Fandom to appreciate?

Sad news today about the death of Terry Pratchett.

I've been going through the Escapade Swap Table items, and I found an audio book of his "Thief of Time", if anybody would like to have it. It's on cassette tapes, but appears to be complete and unabridged.

Reply if you're interested and we'll see about getting it mailed to you...

ETA: It's gone now...
