Back at work. Feel very drained, but then having not eaten much the past day or so that is probably understandable. Have a 4th character sheet and more importantly an online character sheet editor that with a bit more tweaking should work with the Cam website. And then ultimate power will be mine! muahuahahahahahahaah. Or something. Should certainly make my life easier when I start the game next.

Tomorrow I'm going to buy a printer. Anyone have any recommendations? The only requirement I have is that it uses the parallel port rather than USB, cos that is the only connection available. I expect going into PC World mentioning parallel ports will lead to many blank looks from the untrained monkeys they have as staff so I figure getting some recommendations from you lot (who at least have brains) will give me a headstart.


Can't be that bad surely? Whilst most modern PCs come with USB ports, they still come with parallel ports too and there are plenty of other things to stick in them.

Ideally I need it before next Thursday as I'd like to print off peoples' character sheets and various plot notes. Which admittedly I could do on my aging dot matrix printer, but I'd have to start on Monday to have a chance of finishing in time :)

Surely that's what work printers are for?

I think they'd probably notice. It's not like my job involves me printing anything ever, so printing off a dozen or so pages once a month is going to get noticed eventually.

Confusingly PC world seems to have plenty of parallel cables but doesn't seem to find any printers. It does have a USB/Parallel convertor but that appears to be for connecting a parallel printer to a USB port rather than the other way around.
