One caller the other night was concerned that his “new” printer has no off button. He had purchased a used Lexmark X125 machine for $25.00 and couldn’t figure out how to shut the thing down. The only buttons on it (according to him) either start or pause a print job. Keep in mind that this printer originally sold back in 2002.

This is only a guess, but there’s probably a port where your cable runs out of the printer. You can either unplug it there or from the wall. From the sound of it, there’s not really any other options. If there really is no power (or on/off) button, then you have to yank that cord out of the outlet when you want to shut it down.

This seems to be a case of “you get what you pay for.” Printers that cheap aren’t all that out of the ordinary. The ink is what usually costs you an arm and a leg.

Have You Met Your Online Friends in Person? http://chris.pirillo.com/2010/01/06/have-you-met-your-online-friends-in-person/ Thu, 07 Jan 2010 07:01:21 +0000 http://chris.pirillo.com/?p=16935 Continue reading Have You Met Your Online Friends in Person? ]]> I meet up with many people on a regular basis, thanks to things like Tweetups and conferences. Not everyone is so lucky, though. Often, deep and lasting friendships are formed online, but the people involved never have a chance to meet face-to-face. Many people maintain that it’s easier to make a strong connection with someone online, since you don’t have the fears and anxieties associated with how you look, or how you come across in person. Also, people tend to be more open about themselves when they are behind a computer screen, instead of hiding who they really are – and what they really think.

Have you ever met any of your online friends? How did it go? Was the friendship and connection as strong in person as it was while you were on the Internet? I’d love to hear your experiences and thoughts on this. I know that we have community members who met online, and later ended up engaged or married. I’m interested in seeing how many real friendships have sprung up, as well!
