And it has no "select which printer things should come out from". Which
reminds me of an recent episode with the windows printing system:

I had borrowed an account (which i did not know the password of, and its
owner was not here), and was using a speciality app which created result
list from a race (etiming... Avoid it at all means. I think kernel
hacking is easier than using that app... UGH!). What happens? Well, i
hit print, and the nice old little hp inkjet hooked up to it began
printing. Problem was, that that print was of the
very-many-to-many-sheets-for-and-old-inkjet type. So, i hit "abort".
Absolutely NOTHING happens. Hmm... what now? Pull the plug of the
printer, and hope windows can cope. It could. Partially. At least now i
could abort the job... Or not. When i switched on the little guy again,
it started spewing out paper with one line of rubish on each.

After troubling around with it for something like 20 minutes, i was
finaly able to make it stop printing. Problem was: not only did i make
THIS printer stop, i also completely b0rked the poor box'es printing
system. Any job sent to the system, ended up at a random printer
somewhere around the building, or in /dev/null... Only way to find out,
was to check every #$@& printer, and hope nobody got there before me
(these list wasn't official yet => a bit sensitive stuff...)

Hmm... What did i do when my printer at home went borked under Linux? I
did a /etc/init.d/cups restart, and it fixed it. Hmm... Maybe i can do
that to windows to?

Turns out i could. Manage -> services -> system-services -> printer
subsystem -> restart. Print. Paper went to /dev/null no matter what i
tried. ARGH!

What then?


Aha! print it to a file, upload it to the linux-server and print it from
there. Or not. The gui didn't have such a function...

In everything, i used something like 50 minutes chasing that ¤ $§ print
subsys. And reboot wouldn't be possible - i didn't really know the

Lets only hope the reboot i did before i left on friday has had some
effects. I NEED those prints...
