more already? yes, you get more.

printer happenings: i mentioned i upped the resolution & as such got images printing without annoying white lines. so far, i'm getting closer to being able to print images as they appear on the screen via careful & annoying trials involving "-o gamma", "-o saturation", & "-o brightness". it's like a big /mdop #printer in here HA HA IRC JOKES!!!!

...

but upping the resolution meant it took the same amount of time to print a page of text as it did an image, & being an oldschool dos uber-geek, the font just didn't look *right*. so i'd been switching back & forth in the printer configuration between resolutions when i wanted to print text versus images, which was actually kind of irritating since i access the config via a web interface (lynx-friendly!) that requires me to log in each time & it was really a lot of clicking i didn't care to do.

ah! but the other night, i figured out i can tell it i have a "second" printer with all the same settings except with a delightfully crappy lowres print quality. so now i have an alias for printing to the "lowres printer" for text & things are coming together not badly at all. i make kickass text-only album covers - yes, with ASCII ART! mmmm.

LOOK, FIRST PRINTER I'VE OWNED SINCE 1996, OKAY? FUCK YOU. I'M ALLOWED TO BE EXCITED ABOUT THESE BORING STUPID DETAILS.
