The joys of technology
December 11, 2017
I had to buy a new printer when I got home from overseas. The other one just gave up and it was only about 18 months old. This time I bought a Canon . It isn't nearly as bulky and doesn't take up too much room on the desk but the inks cost a bomb. I have just finished printing all the instructions for the next Children's Class and need to get more ink already. First quotes cost more than the printer.
My other problem is linking it to my old PC. Why do I still have a PC you ask when I have the latest Apple desk top? Well it runs my embroidery design program. You can still buy the program but it works on an old operating system.
The latest printers work on Windows 10 and everyone is supposed to be up to speed. It took me half a day trying to get a connection before I worked this out. My husband has an old printer down in his office so now I am running up and down 2 flights of stairs to get a print out.
I am working on a new design for a Kogin class for 2018 and would really like it finished this week if possible. I did have one win though. I found that the new fabric box I made as a prototype holds my Kogin threads perfectly.
Printer ought to be a four-letter word! Printers really should go on a diet as well, the hunger for ink is draining the bank account!

Technology is great but it has sure added to our cost of living.

The manufacturers make their money from the consumables these days, not from the machinery itself!
