A day of little activity – printers

An interesting couple of days. I’ve been working very hard getting a new website up and running but realised that I was doing things in the wrong order. I was making assumptions about my client group, the people who I hope will use my service, and I’ve decided that instead of aiming to have a full working website in the hope of dazzling people, to get people’s permission and their views before proceeding further.

This may be a bit obvious but I do very much tend to get caught up in great enthusiasm thinking that surely everyone must find my idea attractive when in fact there are a myriad factors which may prevent take off of my idea. It may be for example that the timing is wrong.   I have been pressurizing my good friend Terry who is very good at WordPress but I’ve decided now we take it easy and so I give myself a couple of extra weeks to think about things until the key meeting which takes place on the 2nd of December.

As I’ve taken the pressure of myself, there is a strange calm and almost a vacuum and I found myself wandering around like an unemployed person. However, relatives are here and this is a good time to sit and veg out in front of the TV.

After four years, my all in one printer has come to the end of its life. It complains about non-existent paper jams, busily prints something and doesn’t actually make marks on the paper, and is generally unreliable. I think I paid all of £75 for it so I’ve had reasonable value for money. I have looked around for and selected another printer for the princely sum of £29. Part of the reason for the low price is that it is not wireless. It is well known that the printers are sold at rock bottom price because the customer is bound in to spending money on inks.  It is unwise to buy a printer unless you check how much the inks are. For example if you have to pay £25 for a set of inks or say £15 for one large black one, you may want to look around and find a printer model that offers a better price.   The one I have found offers a set of 5 printer cartridges for about £10.
