        I know :), but I don't mean that. I mean that if someone has
the dumb printer which won't work even with your patch (like mine), to
suggest them to use polling directly, so they won't ask it repeatedly
at the mailing lists or news groups. Is just a sugerence to keep the
signal/noise ratio high.

        Take it easy ;)
