Ever since high school, I've taken on the role of "technology guru". I've built and rebuilt PCs of all stripes, installed hardware, tweaked software, and even built network cables and jacks for work. But since building a router from scratch, I haven't been as flummoxed by a technology problem as I have been by making a Mac or Windows box access my printer (attached to a Debian Lenny Linux server) at home. Little Spoon has been waiting to print out a variety of things for the wedding for a while as I've tried in vain to get it working. Well, today I strove to make my accursed printer do its job. Click to expand the details.
With these minor modifications, Little Spoon can now print out the pages she needs to complete her wedding binder, which she's worked so hard to organize and finish over the past week or so.
