The Epson laser printer I got for my computer two years ago has worked great. It serves my needs beautifully. Our household also has a newer, more expensive Epson printer, which I bought for another computer, but it doesn't work nearly as well. Unfortunately, the beloved original now has a malfunction, and I can't find a single printer repairperson who'll even try to fix it. They say it's an antique, and Epson doesn't make parts for it anymore. Nonetheless, I'm determined to save it. I'm scouring eBay for old parts, and will learn printer repair skills myself if necessary. This is one time when the older version is definitely worth preserving. According to my analysis of the astrological omens, Gemini, you're facing a similar problem with a comparable solution.
Interesting. I'll watch for it. The Leo advice (to my moon sign) is fundamentally "don't cheat this week, even if everybody's doing it". That, at least, is highly applicable to my current work environment, which is pretty much where all my time is going right now.
