Boise Ed suggested I make exception to the rule that synchronicity strips have to appear the same day, and in this case I had to agree.

Jim Benton must be a lot more popular than I thought, because several people sent me this synchronicity.

Inkronicity

ink1.jpgink2.gif
Speaking of which… can anybody tell me the logic behind printer companies (I’m gesturing rudely at HP here, but this applies to all of them) discontinuing ink cartridges for printers more 3 or 4 years old? The rationale seems to be that the average person doesn’t keep a printer for longer than that, but the companies should do everything they can to encourage you to hold on to your printer: they make their money selling you ink, and make virtually nothing on the printers themselves.

And of course this just promotes… what’s the opposite of “customer loyalty”?

So it’s a lose-lose all the way down the line.

For that matter, why does HP (for example) need to make ink cartridges in dozens of shapes and sizes, when they all perform the exact same function anyway? Again, it seems to me that absolutely nobody benefits from this.

Lola sent these as synchronicity, although they appeared two days apart. Normally this would disqualify them (hey, I don’t make up the rules, you know) — but I already had the second one, the Argyle Sweater, queued up as a CIDU.
