READER GEORGE ADAMS WRITES: “So, what became of the laser printer bleg? Even if you can’t personally respond to everyone who e-mailed you, the the cardinal rule of blegging is that you must at least post a followup! ”

I never really came to a decision. A few people said the wireless HP laser I mentioned works fine. Some others said I should get a wireless printserver instead, and a few suggested more complex alternatives. I’ve been too busy with grading exams and various family issues to spend much more time on it; I think it’ll have to wait until after the holidays. Anyway, I’ve come up with the best excuse for temporizing yet — I’ll be visiting the Consumer Electronics Show next month and I’ll look around there to see what’s coming out.
