    We have a pet name for our printer, well I shouldn't say printer because it's one of those printer, copier, scanner, stapler, fax, X-ray, omelette maker conglomerations. Hence, a "MultiFunction Device" or "MFD" as the the sales rep that trained us on its many operations referred to it. We probably say MFD more ruefully and with more emphasis on the MF part than the company rep did though. Actually I can't complain about the print quality, just that most of the interface is geared more toward the photocopier aspect than the printer and carefully crafted to frustrate and confuse.

    Need to cancel a print job quickly? Quick! Slap the big red STOP button. Oh right, that works for everything BUT the printer. So how do you cancel a print job? It's 4 levels deep in a menu system that uses vague language, never anything helpful and direct like "Cancel Print Job." What the Hell is going on? The touch screen isn't responding, the printer is happily spewing out page after page of postscript error, it should be woken up, I'm helplessly pushing buttons, why doesn't the screen respond? Ahah, I need to lift the copier lid, that wakes up the screen. Oh well, no need to rush anymore. Out of paper.

    Oh MFD, what will you think of next?

    But I'm sure you'll ace the test we have here for smartassedness. It's pretty easy. You just sit on some ice cream.

    I probably won't be posting the rest of the day due to said *bleeping* project.

    After taking the Browns to the Superbowl, I gave a hearty yank on the tp as usual to get sufficient waddage to banish the bunghole demons and the roll went flying onto floor cuz the rolls are now too short to stay securely on the projections.

    Thanks crummy economy. Thanks a lot.

    Lol! The title to this thread tickled me. My first thought was that your problem must be that you have touched an alien device and slipped into another dimension within our own universe and have essentially become out of phase with the rest of us. I saw this on stargate once. Very serious situation.

    But wait! How are you typing this to us!?!? You must have someone there with you, but in this dimension, that knows you are trapped and you are pressing a button on the alien device that crosses the dimension gap and so can morse code your message to them.

    I'm going to go and physically harm myself now as pennace for talking about startgate on a public forum.

    bad frank, wht-tsh! wht-tshh! Aiiooowwwwwch! I am shamed.

    Woot!!! It's Friday for REALS!!!

    Thanks for the quotes Kool!

    Hubby's got a gig opening for Jeffrey Gaines, who's best known for an acoustic cover of In Your Eyes he did about 10 years ago. Should be a fun gig!

    Everyone have a good weekend, but remember to keep the victims of September 11th in your hearts and minds this anniversary weekend.

      Sweet Baby Jesus it's Friday!!!

      Got my mag off to press yesterday, should have my proof on Monday. Today...I'm going to take it easy I think.

      No real plans lined up for this weekend until Sunday. Then it's paintball. Afterwards, I get to go from the field, straight to Audi's parents place for dinner. Hope I can use their shower!!

      Enjoy your weekend kids!! Summer is closing down, so if you've got good weather, make the best of it!

          Is it OK to BUMP this thread from last Friday?

          Let's see. My little guy is sick at home with the wifie today.
          We were planning on going to Famous Dave's for some chain-restaurant quality BBQ food (I have a BOGO coupon from my birthday) so not sure if that is still in the mix or just do carryout.

          Saturday is a trip to Costco!

                      Yeah for quotes! I haven't been one in awhile, how exciting.

                      This poor unicorn is just drowning in magazine layouts and ads and pushing through the weekend for a deadline that was in fact LAST friday. *sigh*

                                I'm not sure what you mean by identifying and figuring out the pattern. If you're trying to recreate the camouflage-like, shadowy shapes, it would take less time to redraw them than to write a post asking...

                                It's probably a gray camouflage stock texture multiplied over a burlap texture multiplied over vector art of bricks.
                                You can get gray camo textures just about any stock site.
                                For example,...
