Lose one, win one.

Uncanny. It's as if it knew. Just after I got ladysolly's new Airprint-enabled colour inkjet printer running, my faithful old Lexmark colour inkjet gave up the ghost. I mostly use it for printing out maps for caching, so colour is quite important. The problem it's giving, is that the paper feed isn't feeding paper into the printer.

Given the cost of these things (about £25), there's no way it's worth repairing. So, I think I'll get a colour laser; I can get one for £100 (with wifi). Meanwhile, I've pressed a mono laser I had lying around into service, so caching tomorrow (if I go, the wind right now is howling vigorously, I'll see how I feel in the morning) will be in monochrome, around Hambledon - the weather forecast is that it'll be fine around there.

I notice that I found more caches than anyone else in the UK in 2011. But it's not about the numbers, it's about the adventure. Tomorrow, I expect I'll be blown over a few times.
