Thanks to this OT post I helped someone to have his HP Officejet printer 
working...  I think it was worth it.
Should we have one OT post per week or so ?...as long as it deals with 
SOUND or/and LINUX?... no politics, cars, animals, Operating Sytems than 
hang a lot daily, etc...
If someone stops by this audio group to solve an audio problem and 
he/she also solves another problem ( Linux related like winmodem or 
printer or how to setup Mozilla to print better) then... he/she got more 
than expected from this group!...  But, for example, if it turns into a 
discussion on MS EXCEL... Then it is not audio nor Linux... and should 
be stopped or moved somewhere else.
