Maybe the Devil looks after his own? Or maybe your printer was built before the the invention of Artificial Evil software for printers?

Mind you, my old Apple Laserwriter II went for well over a decade with no problem too. It could print entire documents from go to whoa without feeling the need to sabotage the entire print run if it got a bit low on toner. It would happily take up where it left off if there was a jam or something half-way through, rather than wanting to just start again like this dog. And jams were rare, not like this cheap rubbish which has virtually never been known to print a multi-page document all the way through without some kind of problem. Considering the Laswriter cost over $7,000, that's the least one would expect of course. Nevertheless, it contradicts the notion that all printers are inherently evil.
