Getting organized

My new desk is assembled and ready. Now I can FINALLY start unpacking my office. I'm still using the old desk. But my business is so busy that I actually need two desks to stay organized. Now I have one for the computer and one with clear space for things like reviewing paperwork and writing checks. The second desk can also function as a nice little work station for any assistant I hire in the future. And once my office is unpacked and organized, I plan to unpack the rest of my home as well. I'm tired of living in a chaotic mess of boxes and stuff everywhere.

jonwa downloaded the latest drivers for my new printer today and it still won't print the quantity I ask it for. To add insult to injury, he has found it online for about $30 less than I paid for. I'm going to call customer support on Monday. If they can't help me, I'll see what I can do about returning it. Although that might be impossible since I'm not actually strong enough to lift the printer and carry it down 4 flights of stairs to my truck.


What kind of printer did you get!? I print a large volume of documents, and I have a desktop HP OfficeJet all in one that weighs probably 10lbs. I got it 2-3 years ago at Wal-Mart for under $100.
I got a Brother printer that, as far as I know, is the only printer on the market that prints 11x17. It also scans 11x17. It's quite massive, being the first of it's kind and all. I'm sure as the technology to print that big becomes more common, the printers will get smaller and lighter.
There are a lot of large format printers on the market, the technology is definitely not new. I have an epson that prints 17" wide and up to 44" long that is 8-10 years old.

It sounds like yours is an all-in-one style printer though and perhaps large format all-in-ones are new. I know nothing about all-in-ones.
When they told me at the store that it was the first, I assumed they meant the first that prints that large. But I think you're right, they meant the first all in one that prints that large. It scans, prints, faxes, copies, etc.
