Happy days

Not strictly a printer droids fault but ...

I once worked at a university and a big part of the annual registration process to getting the registration form working. As they had not progressed to proper interfaces between systems the registration form was a 5 part carbon that had to be printed on some ancient serial connected matrix printers. Of course, each year they would redesign the bloody form and it was a different size every time so i had a major fight to fiddle the printer settings to work with it

I actually suggested getting an interface between Student Records and Finance at a meeting and the head of registry went absolutely ballistic.

I wish I had a step ladder now.
