Dear Canon

Dear Canon, I generally love your printers. Your copiers are a different story. In addition to being problematic work emailing via SSL on non-standard ports, it’s 2016…and changing the IP address requires a full restart of the copier, a problem solved by Windows in 1999. Firmware updates, please!

Altaro’s ‘Gotcha’

I’d like to actually poke around and resolve the issue, but with the time factor involved, I decided to try out the excellent Altaro backup program.

Of course, in order to search that, I started to get automatic suggestions…and I don’t really know how to feel about the list of things people seem to commonly search for on Amazon that start…

More RAM

Though misattributed to Bill Gates, in the mid-1980’s it was stated that “640k of RAM should be enough for anybody”. The first new home computer my dad got came with 16MB of RAM, which was later upgraded to 48. My first three laptops all had 192MB of RAM; I edited many a video on them.…
