No, Mrs. Carol Satan didn't kick the bucket. In fact, she's alive and well and in possession of a new "liberry" card. But enough about her...
Instead, our problems with the new Millennium system giving our printer diarrhea
seem to have mostly been resolved. Today, Mrs. C noticed that the
little PRINT SLIP box that had been turning itself on at its own whim,
causing our printer to reward us with a cover-page and a print for just
about any normal function, had simply vanished. Gone. Bye byes. We still
had a PRINT button at the top of the screen, allowing us to print on
our own schedule as necessary, but the slip box was definitely gone from
all screens. We haven't heard officially, but it would seem someone has
messed about with the master control program and sorted things out.
My theory is that someone higher-up did the math, saw
how much money was being wasted by the printers of 31 libraries spitting
out a steady stream of unwanted paper and told the techs to shut it
Now if we can only convince them to shut off the coversheets we'll be groovy.
