My company builds high-performance commercial inkjet printers, which can print full-color duplex (front and back) at 17 feet of paper per second.

Why is it then that the ~50 page job I sent to the office printer 25 feet away 45 minutes ago is still less than half printed?

Oh wait.

Print jobs from Dayton Ohio get sent to a server in Rochester New York and then back to printers in Dayton Ohio. I know there's a telegrapher in the middle there somewhere.

I could drive home (20 minutes), print the file on my $45 printer (5-10 minutes), and come back before this crap is done.

Grrr... Mad | :mad:

Update: After a little over an hour, the print job failed at page 38 and restarted. Hurray. The phrase "kill it before it grows" comes to mind.
