Print Cam!

Post by JackFoz »

The printers upstairs, I'm downstairs! Oh no!

The solution for a fat lazy g*t like me is to use a camera! But seriously it's brilliant for the quick check to see is she's still going!

That's what I bought my dropcam for. Nothing like sitting at a bar with friends, showing them how its spewing plastic haphazardly because the print broke loose.

g i t ;-) English slang ;-)

All those years of watching Monty Python has finally paid off ;-)

Git is a mild[1] pejorative with origins in British English for a silly, incompetent, stupid, annoying, senile, elderly or childish person.[2] It is usually an insult, more severe than twit or idiot but less severe than wanker, arsehole or twat.[1][3][4]

Haha! Yeah Git! Forgot that it's not used that much out if the UK and I wasn't sure if it would be acceptable for a forum (I didn't know how people out of the UK would think of it) better to be safe than sorry.
