A New Printer......

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

Yesterday I spent the day installing a new printer. The directions were obtuse but the box had been in my entry way for months and I am having company today. I have a Mac and two windows computers that are no longer being supported because they have old operating systems. It took about five hours with help to get the Mac connected.

When we tried the Windows machine where I have proprietary software I purchased years ago and still use, no go. I couldn't get online to download the drivers and without it I can't use it. I called and left a message for a local computer guy I have used before. What a bummer. 

The new printer does way more than I need and is bigger and heavier than my old one. If I could find a printer that truly connected itself wirelessly to my computers I would be a lifetime customer.

First world problems are annoying. Later.

What drives me crazy about color lasers is the cheap price until you have ti replace the toners at way to high of a price.

Such are the challenges of modern life.  Do you have a 12-year-old neighbor that plays video games?  He or she could probably help you.

My friend down the street has a printer she cannot connect to her super old computer. I've tried troubleshooting every which way for her, and the only way for her to go is to get rid of the computer.

Of course, the nice thing about newer printers is they practically set up themselves.

Hi Sheila! Oh, what a PITA! I absolutely detest setting up technical stuff - no matter what the device is! I would call my tech guy too - but, just as you did, after spending hours trying to figure it out myself!

I need to learn not to open the box until he arrives at my house! LOL
