If everybody on the Trinity users mailing list will send me $20 each, then I 
will run out and buy myself a laser printer like you all advise, thanks! 
(Just kidding, folks.) 

I don't have the option to spend money like real people. So I guess I will 
just have to take my chances, leaks or no, and hope for the best. I only need 
this thing to work for maybe a year or so, while I finish work on a couple of 
books, and do layout of some mock-up pages. 

When I suddenly strike it rich, then I will go out and buy me one of those 
fancy laser printers.
