panther printing woes

great. i noticed today that upgrading to panther has screwed up my ability to print to my hp deskjet 895cse .

at first my problems looked pretty similar to those seen by others , but after installing the newest panther update [ which purports to fix printing-related problems amongst others ] and reinstalling the hp drivers , now all i get is pages and pages of symbols and control characters [ actually it looks like it might be trying to print postscript, even thought the printer isn't poscript compatible ].

sigh. apparently a goodly number of people are having a wide range of printing problems

update: 11.14.03 o.k. a call to applecare fixed the problem. it seemed like they had me repeat what i was doing when it was broken, but this time it magically fixed the problem. i think the only difference was i closed all open programs before i reinstalled the drivers, which seems like a decidedly pee cee thing to have to do. .

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
