Jealous much? Here you go AC, have an upvote, even though you don't really deserve it.

agencies have been useless at providing anyone with a job they were applying for and usually try to get you to go for totally unsuitable positions that they actually have on the books
To a recruiter, the perfect job for you is whatever they have available.
I'd be mildly surprised if you couldn't find a "compatible" PCL5 model with the universal driver. My 15 year old P2055dn is quite the spring chicken in comparison so I can't confirm if it would work with your old timer, but I tend to assume that old LaserJets should carry on printing forever as long as the hardware is functioning.
At a company I worked for recently there was a team of users who spent most of their day manually entering data from a spreadsheet in to an IBM RPG application via a terminal emulator. I showed them how they could complete this task in a matter of minutes using macros. Most of them were not impressed, I assume because it made them pretty much redundant, so they carried on doing it by typing everything in by hand.
Data integrity? We probably haven't heard of it...
As far as I'm aware, this is a common feature of factory fitted car audio systems. In VWs (Blaupunkt?) it is/was called GALA, and could be adjusted or disabled. I agree it shouldn't continue to crank the volume up to maximum, though it seems odd that the service centre would completely strip down the vehicle. Presumably they tried simply replacing the stereo?
Oh don't get me started with the unwelcome reboots... It drives me nuts when I go to the PC in the morning to discover that it has been rebooted overnight, without a care for my unsaved documents.
Perhaps I am a little foolish for not saving my documents, but they are just random notes in Notepad. I would have no problem with losing the data if it were entirely my fault, but this is completely avoidable. How about you just present me with a message saying it was unable to reboot last night due to to unsaved documents, and let me decide when the thing restarts? Grr
It does bother me that healthcare workers are getting all the glory. I appreciate they're having a harder time than most, but nobody's clapping for the supermarket staff, refuse collectors, frontline logistics workers, etc.
Also, can I politely request that we leave "The Tories" and "Brexit" out of this? This isn't HYS. Do you really think things would be different with another party in government, or if we voted to stay in the EU? For the record, I'm a "remoaner" and have never voted Conservative.
So, Europe manufactures some high performance & luxury vehicles? You don't see that many Rolls Royces on the road though, not like the likes of the Ford F series and Dodge Ram in North America.
Why not name a few aircraft/ship builders, too? Those are the real gas guzzlers.
