MiT...STILL printing

It sure does take a long time. It took me 7 hours to print 2 pages (21 copies each) today!

Each page is about 22 inches long (but there is a lot of white space, where I'll be gocco printing the text), and on Rives BFK, so I couldn't even just set the printer up with a stack of paper and let it go to it on its own. The long paper flopped around and the printer couldn't grip it, so babysitting was required. I'm about 1/2 through the 3rd page, but I think I'll give up for the night and continue tomorrow.

I got really good at timing how long each page would take though, in between doing chores, and could get back to the printer just as it's about ready for the next sheet of paper. I also started trimming the book boards for the cover.

Ordered my little CD player boombox with the ipod dock. Looking forward to catching up on my 'reading.'

Yes, I think so. Especially since I'm sure I'll get sick and tired of the relentless election coverage coming up!
