Liberty is an inherently offensive lifestyle. Living in a free society guarantees that each one of us will see our most cherished principles and beliefs questioned and in some cases mocked. That psychic discomfort is the price we pay for basic civic peace. It's worth it. It's a pragmatic principle. Defend everyone else's rights, because if you don't there is no one to defend yours. -- MaxedOutMama

I don't just want gun rights... I want individual liberty, a culture of self-reliance....I want the whole bloody thing. -- Kim du Toit

The most glaring example of the cognitive dissonance on the left is the concept that human beings are inherently good, yet at the same time cannot be trusted with any kind of weapon, unless the magic fairy dust of government authority gets sprinkled upon them.-- Moshe Ben-David

The cult of the left believes that it is engaged in a great apocalyptic battle with corporations and industrialists for the ownership of the unthinking masses. Its acolytes see themselves as the individuals who have been "liberated" to think for themselves. They make choices. You however are just a member of the unthinking masses. You are not really a person, but only respond to the agendas of your corporate overlords. If you eat too much, it's because corporations make you eat. If you kill, it's because corporations encourage you to buy guns. You are not an individual. You are a social problem. -- Sultan Knish

All politics in this country now is just dress rehearsal for civil war. -- Billy Beck

The HP DeskJet D2680 SUCKS!!!!

My daughter got one as a freebie in a bundle with a new PC. She liked the printer she already had, and knew that I didn't have a printer for the Franken-puter I built last year, so she gave it to me. (Prior to this, I've been using my Epson Stylus RX620 3-in-1 printer/scanner as a network printer, but I have to have the old machine it's running on in the other room on at the same time.)

Let me reiterate: The HP DeskJet D2680 SUCKS!!!!

Yes, the HP DeskJet D2680 SUCKS!!!!

And, not to put too fine a point on it, the HP DeskJet D2680 SUCKS!!!!

Not only does it go through (expensive, non-refillable) ink like a 426 Hemi goes through hi-test, it can't seem to print more than three pages before locking up the print spooler in the middle of a page. Sometimes it can't even print one entire page.

Apparently this is a known issue. It's been known for a while. And HP still hasn't fixed it.

No wonder they're giving these things away for free. If they actually sold them as printers, they'd be sued for fraud.
