  • Fry’s After Christmas Sale

    Posted on December 26th, 2003 wt8008 1 comment

    Inspired by yoshi ;).. well maybe more like a copy of him. 😀

    the plan:
    –printer section–
    HP Printer $99

    –what I got–
    Cannon i850 Refubished $79.99

    what happened:
    I woke up around 10:45 AM to “raid” Fry’s for the printer. I took my time and didn’t rush. I left the house around 11:00 AM and the parking lot was rather full, at least there was no long line to get into Fry’s ;). When I went in we see the fun return line… long enough for me:P. First thing we did was clamly walked to the printer section and looked at the printers where we found our HP. After looking around we found in the HP printer an except of PC Mag review of the printer and after looking at that we went to the 😮 inks section. We saw the Cannon printer with a nice cost for prints per page.

    At the ink sections we compared the HP and Cannon inks. HP and Cannon inks costs the same, but the volume was different. There was more ink in the Cannon. 🙂 Better deal… must save money. We can also buy the nonbrand cannon inks and those are even more cheaper :D. I also have some left over refill inks.

    The line went all the way to the end of the row when got in the line so it wasn’t that long, but then they opened the rarly used registers on the other side. We left around noon.

    Went home and ate my lunch/breakfast and got my new printer up. My mini celebration after “raiding” Fry’s. 😉 I feel sorry for all those after Thanksgiving people. 😉

    My old printer sucks… I don’t want to decribe it see the print samples that I scanned here. The new printer is also faster :), and must more quieter :). I don’t even know why they have a quiet mode on it :P. I used the USB cable from my IOMEGA drive, I have no idea what is the difference between paralell and the USB, expect it being faster?

    Someone requested pictures:

  • [1] Plain brown box, *whew* The printer is made in Thailand ;).
  • [2] Printer on the outside
  • [3] Inks, the print head can change and each color has its own cartiage.
  • 今天,我去了一间电子店。我买了一个打印机。(上面有几个照片。)打印机的墨很贵。这么坏?(上面是我新的机,后面是我旧的机。)

  • Christmas Dinner

    Posted on December 25th, 2003 wt8008 2 comments

    I had my Christmas Dinner tonight… food was better than last night. It was all Chinese :D. Stir-fried beef, long cooked beef lam with carrots and white carrot, Chinese mushrooms, the red BBQ pork, rice, and tarro cake at the end. Everyone sat though the first hour of LOTR Return of the Kings, but then the it couldn’t really read the VCD at the beginging and near the end of it. I don’t really feel like watching the next two hours… the movie doesn’t interest me. I got lots of cookies (Danish cookies, the egg roll cookie) and candy (chocolate) as gifts 😛 and one t-shirt.

    Tomorrow I would be going to Fry’s to pick up a new printer. My old printer is a pain… took me one hour to get it to print with all the colors flowing and then there were still problems because it was printing extra lines across the page. If you see today’s Fry’s ad it is the HP Photo printer that is refurbished for $99.

    I think this is a nice link to share:
    http://www.snopes.com/holidays/christmas/physics.asp
    The Physics of Santa and that he doesn’t exists, but after you read that at the bottom of the page there are links to rebuttals. Wow, I never knew you can have so much physics going on with Santa. 😛

    I should be more productive this holiday compared to previous years. I almost got through outlining section 2 of chapter 15. I’m too lazy to play my stock market game now. 😛 Stocks are going to end the year highs :), but then if you got in the market two years ago you just broke even :P.

    I was connected on AIM for 1 day and 10 hours + :). Uptime: 1 day 14 hours. I got to shutdown now. 🙁 Save power.

    Tomorrow would be Christmas Eve… vaction time going down… finals getting closer.

    Homework completed remained unchanged.
