You've heard of having a bad hair day? Well, today was a bad hardware day for me. First my HP DVD writer started making ugly spindle motor sounds and would not read a disk, then a little later my 12 year old HP printer jammed up and broke a print head transport drive belt. Fortunately, thanks to the fact that I hoard used stuff out in my shop, I had a replacement DVD writer and an exact same model printer to replace these faulty ones with. Ain't hoarding great? All's well now. Sad about the old printer, though. She sure was a good little machine (Deskjet 842C). I bought it in 2000. It was the very first printer I ever bought brand new from a store. Nothing lasts forever, I s'pose. I definitely got my $119.00 out of it.
