    Once upon a time there was a printer who lived in the woods.  He was a
    lonely printer, because nobody knew how to configure him.  He hoped
    and hoped for someone to play with.
    One day, the wind passed by the printer's cottage.  "Whoosh," said the
    wind.  The printer became excited.  Maybe the wind would be his
    "Will you be my friend?" the printer asked.
    "Whoosh," said the wind.
    "What does that mean?" asked the printer.
    "Whoosh," said the wind, and with that it was gone.
    The printer was confused.  He spent the rest of the day thinking and
    jamming paper (for that is what little printers do when they are
    The next day a storm came.  The rain came pouring down, darkening the
    morning sky and destroying the printer's garden.  The little printer
    was upset.  "Why are you being so mean to me?" he asked.
    "Pitter Patter, Pitter Patter," said the rain.
    "Will you be my friend?" the printer asked shyly.
    "Pitter Patter, Pitter Patter," said the rain, and then it left and
    the sun came out.
    The printer was sad.  He spent the rest of the day inside, sobbing and
    blinking lights cryptically (for that is what little printers do when
    they are sad).
    Then one day, a little girl stumbled into the printer's clearing in
    the woods.  The printer looked at this curious sight.  He didn't know
    what to think.  
    The little girl looked up at him.  "Will you be my friend?" she asked.
    "Yes," said the printer.
    "What is your name?" asked the little girl.
    "HP 4100TN", replied the printer.
    "My name is gnome-cups-manager" said the little girl.
    The printer was happy.  He spent the rest of the day playing games and
    printing documents, for that is what little printers do when they are

    That sounds like the kind of thing I'd do.
    He that would make his own liberty secure must guard even his enemy from oppression; for if he violates this duty he establishes a precedent that will reach to himself.
