Seed Widespread Printer Discontent = Printer Hate
This is a routine that allows a user to specify particular
functionality on a per user basis.
Suppose you had a co-worker or colleague that you did
care for. This functionality would allow you to program
to behave in a certain predefined way just
There are thousands of settings on a printer and I could
describe wish list routines all day but here are a few.
I would love a chance to have the printer request a
password reset and require/prompt for entry of a new 37
digit numerical password.
You could set the printer to require multiple entry of
code on a random basis. So if user 1101 attempts access
the screen would display a no user found message and
allow usage only after 3- 7 entries of the same number.
You may set the printer to multiply whatever print
is entered by a floating factor and then print an
amount. The particular user may enter 2 for quantity the
routine will multiply by 27.5 and display 55 copies
and yet only print one copy.
You may decide to input an image that is to be
superimposed on the background of every scanned
document sent to your co-workers email address?
The options can be endless here. While this tool is an
entertaining means to more efficiently manage your co-
workers office experience the ultimate purpose could
be to generate widespread copier hate when you think it
may be time to have it replaced.
