Does anyone make a desktop printer that isn't subsidised by the cost of replacement ink?

My piece of poop Epson has drained itself of ink the last time, and even knock-off ink is £50!

At the moment I'm looking at Brother laser printers, but even they seem suspiciously cheap. All I really need is black and white. Any suggestions?

This is a shot in the dark, but I'm looking for any information about an obscure text adventure game--so obscure I don't the name or even if it had a public release.

Daniel Gasteiger was a guest on a 1986 "Chronicles" episode on macros. He demonstrated a text adventure he wrote in the Lotus Symphony office suite using macros. All we have is the single page of text from the on-air demo.

Gasteiger passed away some years ago, so I can't ask him about it. Anyone around here know anything?

Hello! My name is Colin and I am a mathematician.

Today is the birthday of Paul Dirac, Sir Roger Penrose and Manjul Bhargava, who have two Nobel Prizes and a Fields Medal between them. I have a medal from a half-marathon in rural Dorset that involved running through a field.

If there's some way I can help you slog through the undergrowth of a problem that's tripping you up, let me know!
