Though I'd agree HP hasn't made anything worth buying recently, I'm
still happy with (and still using on a daily basis) my HP Business
Inkjet from 2001.  I sent Ken a picture of the ink tanks I grafted on
(it's a model that had cartridges originally, but had the same
internal pump-driven pressure feed as the bigger commercial inket
models, so you can route tubing in).  I refill it with a liter of ink
every few months for ~$10.  The color ink isn't any more expensive
than the black and it will print on *anything*.
