Female Linux user, been 'playing' with computers for a long while.

I'm quite sure I don't know everything, and I'm always trying to discover more.

Decent programmer in several languages, can decipher most anything. A background in electronics,repair and nuclear engineering. (Honest!)

I enjoy reading, discovering new things, music and my computers.
(and long walks on the beach, large dogs and chocolate... yeah yeah)

Warped, offbeat sense of humor, been told I have "The Knack", learned it's not fatal though, whew!

For the most part... "I make things work.™"

I really hate telling someone "NO, you can't do that", so I often find some offbeat method to accomplish things. Nothing is really impossible, just some things are more difficult to do than others. It's those 'difficult' things I enjoy. The Challenge!

{Chuckle} Ok, so I'm easily amused, but I do find it interesting with the 'badges'. Well done, it's like those nasty farm games on those toy sites, but more entertaining because I learn while earning them. Yaay!

Perhaps screen saver kicks in? Try disabling it, just turn off monitor if necessary.

comment Save Print Job in Queue as PDF
Why not just ALWAYS print things to the PDF queue? Then print any you desire as a paper copy afterwards. Hmmmm.
