Not much happened today. I had to deal with technical support for the Brother Printer I use for the behalf of someone else, but needless to say it is the same problem I had a few months ago. It will seem as if I will have to go through hoops again with them, and it wouldn’t happen if they will just send me something that worked.
I also walked the dogs, and tried to get a hold of my brother which I was unsuccessful for the most part. Otherwise, I didn’t do much really. As for plans for tomorrow, I will likely have to go to Downtown to address the incompetency of Brother. I will try to fix this problem on my own by repeating the procedure I had to do 5 or 6 times before, but otherwise, not much else to do.
Today was a bit of a normal day. I had to make a phone call. In addition, my brother called me and asked me to send an email for him. I went to the post office which required I done another errand. After which, I taken care of a couple of bills.
I think the medicine I am currently taking is getting to me. I been feeling a bit ill, and I doubt it’s from anything else. It’s as if I was taking it for the first time which is not the case since I been on this for years now. Thankfully I see my doctor later this month. Continue reading June 7
Early in April, I came across a need to print labels. The reason is regular mailings on the behalf of someone else. In any case, I was brought with a dilemma. Do I go and buy more sheets of labels that may or may not print exactly as needed, and spend on ink to print these, or do I look for a better alternative. I already knew of label printers, but needed something on a budget. The Dymo series started are around $150, and goes up from there. I found an alternative being the brother QL-570. which was about $100.Â I also acquired a roll of labels which while more expensive per label, the cost savings would come with the thermal printer which requires no resources other than electricity.
The printer is fast for its size. I am able to print out about 20 labels with barcodes in about 1 minute.Â This makes my life easier as I never have to wait. And since the labels are never printed until needed, it is going to save on resources. And since the printer is thermal, it is not going to require an ink cartridge, nor a laser cartridge. Heat is applied to specially coated material, in this case the labels. The software package is also good allowing for a wide range of effects. The address book can import and export CSV files which makes storing a backup of the needed addresses easier. Continue reading Brother QL-570
