minor annoyances

I got a really cool printer-scanner-copier-fax (HP Officejet 5110) for Christmas. I want to use this to build a personal document management system – to scan all my correspondence and make a searchable, OCR’d archive.

It also complements my wife’s xmas gift, which was a comparatively nice digital camera. Since the Officejet can print 4800×1200, it should produce some nice prints.

But the annoyance is that the Officejet didn’t come with the required USB cable. And it’s the one cable I don’t have. Zette had one for her old printer, but I don’t know where it is. She might have used it for her parents’ printer. Hmm.
