    Automatic Laminator and Trimmer

    I've got the old one too. Simple setup, simple to use, there is a feature to mitigate the "dwell mark" which I've never had to use. You have to get used to adjusting the tension on the rolls, top and bottom, so the sheets don't dive into the bin. Have had some incredible jams, mostly from...

    " Right click the taskbar > taskbar settings > combine taskbar buttons > never" This have zero to do with where the folders open on the desktop. No idea how you thought I was referring to taskbar. Open any folder.. or Program/App, then open something else.. The 2nd item opens right on top of...

    Windows 11

    Please.. I use 10.. I started with Win 3.1.. (DOS 5 actually) Built many machines over the years. Win 7 is BETTER than 10, if not safer. I really hate it when things are changed - to make me safer - as if. All they did was make it harder to mod, and STUPID. The apps that are pushed on you are...

    Volkswagen drops bombshell creating a potential print bonanza

    But will they program them to report false, or actual data? A scifi story I read a long time ago postulated a current human in the future riding in a car.

    Smells Hurting Office Workers?

    Actually. you are absorbing something of it. Smells are physical transfer of molecules. Molecules fit into receptors in your olfactory sensors (nose) and signal the brain. Solvents, being far more volatile than a ham sandwich, physically transfer a good amount of material in the air. :unsure:

    Font management - Mac vs. Windows

    Trying to get the salespeople to go back to the client is worse than pulling teeth. Sometimes we struggle for hours on some stupid pdf issue, when we finally say we MUST go back to client.. then get a new file in 20 mins., fixed... it's frustrating. Sales don't want to "bother" the client.

    Lamination coming off near spine of the notebook (perfect bound)

    That temperature seems to be low to me. My low temp film runs at 220 deg F. Also, when laminating toner printed materials, you cannot use cheap lamination.. You need a lamination glue designed for the purpose. Something like Digibond, or Ultragrip.. (Nobelus) Various companies have similar...
