New decade, new office (continued)

Now live and 27" wide!

Okay, this is scary good. Not only did the new computer find and set-up the Ether-connected LaserJet from the Eudora print window, it also has this lovely "nearby printers" option that wirelessly printed to both USB inkjet printers that are hooked up to my laptop. Again, without me needing to do anything in the usual printer set-up system prefs.

It also thinks "Dell at Deb&Mike's" is a nearby printer. Yes, I know that's because it's one of the printers with drivers installed on my laptop, but it amuses me to think of the surprises I could leave for them there if Middleton really was as nearby as my new desktop computer seems to think it is.

Yes, I'll be cursing the way Apple keeps changing system fonts with new releases of OSX, and I have no doubt more Snow Leopard surprises still await, but for tonight? Tonight I'm super happy with how the equipment is playing so nicely together.

Just do a little surreptitious reconfiguration on their router, and then you probably can print from home to Middleton.

Just for the record, I shuddered before I grinned.

In short: no way, no how. Mike is hosting my professional domain. He has the both the knowhow and the Evil Genius gene to do far, far worse to me. Not only that, Deb has the coolest-ever pattern-welded sword -- "Berger des Chat" that Mike had made for her from a meteorite he supplied to the swordsmith.

The only messing I'll do with these friends is the sort of messing about that leaves them laughing.

(Okay, that last paragraph is true of all my friends, but few can so easily and thoroughly trump me when it comes to payback.)
