Hi John,
Whatever questions surface here, be sure to write a blog post with the answers. You can kill two birds with one stone, so to speak.

Okay. How do you embed images into a Windows Live Mail signature on Windows 10. And don't tell me not to use Windows Live Mail because I like Windows Live Mail. Embedding images into my signature on Windows 7 was never a problem. But it does not work with Windows 10 and the tutorials seem to throw up their hands.

 What type of black toner HP4300 laser uses?  My toner has been exibibiting out of toner soon for over 1 year. Now it displays will be out 700 pages. My replacement toner streaks (Paid $150, newer ). I am tempting to put new toners or fill into the out of toner catridge as I have nothing to lose. A new cartridge will cost me $285 for 15,000 pages.

What is your technology solution to the security minded Internet user. (That should be EVERYBODY)

What I am looking for is a home server that will allow (firewall/separation/isolation) of home, business, game and of course the digital twin.

The 'Best Buy" solutions most readily available do not allow such partitioning of the server and in my opinion, VPN is not sufficiently through.

Question two:

Is your office wireless or hardwired?

John Smith I quit purchasing inkjet printers about 15 years ago because if I failed to use one for two weeks or more the ink would dry up ion the printhead and they never seemed to print properly ever again. I know there have been advancements BUT has this problem been resolved?

Also about that time Epson started to put chips in thier printers that automatically stopped them from use after X number of copies with a message stating "your printer has run it's life span" or something like that. Do they or any other printer still do that?

well after reading all the comments and finding you say twice "I don't know, but Google says" I think I will stick with my own IT guy for technology questions.  A lot to that you get what you pay for and your free advice doesn't seem too good.
