I do have an MFC at .21 on the local net. One of Brothers tabloid sized
Color inkjets. Windows 10-home doesn't seem to be aware of it. What I
need for this job is a bare-a$$ed color printer, but all I could find at
Staples last week were physicly huge MFC's. Wally has some really cheap
$40 ones, but I suspect that I'd have to buy one per job because the
heads would dry up and clog between uses. Back when I was a fan of
epsons, the cost of the inks was $250/year just to print the nightly
amanda reports to exercise the printer. That worked out to about $1 a
sheet and it still got clogged. I didn't do that with the last one and
wound up with the head hopelessly clogged, would not clean, 2 weeks
after I parked it on the table from new in the box. $500 for an AI1. For
this, I need something that fits in a briefcase, and Just Works, maybe
once a month. Is such a beast even made today? Doubtfull.
