I have a funky printer...

I'm used to toner, you know, gradually DYING on me. Things getting fainter and fainter and then you finally cave and change the cartridge and all goes on smoothly like that.

This afternoon my printer, in the midst of a print job stopped. Stopped DEAD. And presented me with the message "TONER LIFE END".

And would not move again, holding the rest of my printout hostage, until I had replaced the toner cartridge.

It's a fine thing when your hardware holds you to ransom.
