Mark, I think possibly you and John have forgotten what it might be like
to be young and broke... I myself can afford whatever computer/printer I
want, as it happens, but there are, believe it or not, some people who
have budgets stretched to the breaking point and beyond: Remember the
thing about starving artist? It can still happen. Are you simply
dismissing them as not worthy of our exalted company? We are an oligarchy?

In other words, I think Carmen may be a better judge of her budgetary
priorities than, um [fill in the blank of your choice-- I'm restraining
myself]. What she needed to know was can she buy a printer head (whatever
that is) anywhere. Surely folks who know as much as you guys do can answer
that question.

love & kisses,
