gathering dust.

[OT] Need an Epson FX-890 or similiar dot matrix printer for a day or two.

From: Mike Harrison 

At $work, we need to see if we can work around known issues with MSIE 8 
and good old fashioned dot matrix printers printing receipts.

Know anywhere/one I can borrow/rent one from for a day or two?

Otherwise, we just might have to buy one.. ($329 on Amazon..)

comcast matrix

From: Ed King 
anyone else seeing osd jibberish during certain commericals over Comcast cable?  
or is it just me?

seems like it started doing this a few days ago...  right after I connected my 
mythtv box between the cable box and the tv...    still see the jibberish even 
tho I removed the mythtv box completely...  makes me wonder if my Haupauge 
pvr-150 remote sent some funky ir code to the tv or cable box

the jibberish only appears during certain commericials, not sure how to explain 
it other than its a series of about 40 characters, no discernable words, and the 
last 2 or 3 characters of the line of jibberish are constantly changing...   
reminds me of The Matrix (even tho I've never watched that movie...   I tried to 
once, but it bored me...   1979's Russian movie Stalker, on the other hand, kept 
my attention for the whole 3 hours, and it had very, very little special
