Copier problems! Arrrgh!

Alright, who's idea was it to put a public copier in every library? and why is it when you call for service it takes F-O-R-E-V-E-R for the service rep to actually come out TO the library.

Yesterday we finally got the blue (Cyan -- corrected!) toner we'd requested last week, and then today the BLACK toner gives out!

Our patrons are ready to riot!

It's almost as frustrating as the budget cuts.

It makes you want to do the "Office Space" copier dance!

edit: we got the black toner in today -- they sent TWO! Horray!

Great blog. And it's spelled "cyan." The four colors in CMYK are cyan, magenta, yellow and black.

Most copiers/printers these days have a "fill level" that shows what level each color is at and then provides a warning when you're low. I try to order as soon as I notice the "low warning" light.

Ah, yes, cyan! Thanks for that!

which brings up an interesting question:

Why is blue given an exotic name like 'cyan', red is called 'magenta', yet yellow and black are just 'yellow' and 'black'?

Shouldn't they have exotic names, too? Yellow would be so much more fun as 'canary' or 'lemon'! Black as 'midnight' (although that is also a shade of blue) or something like that. LOL

What can I say? That's why artists shouldn't come up with names for copier ink!!
