Sending Documents to a Network Folder

We have added a new feature to all of our high volume black & white printers (Bart, Lisa, Maggie, & Homer): scan to network folder. The scan to email function has proven so popular, we decided to improve upon it. The scan to network folder function works just like the scan to email function, but instead of emailing you the PDF, it automatically saves the PDF to the \\files\pdfs network share. The email function is still an option as well. Directions for scan to network folder are below.

 Step 1

Load your originals face down in the Automatic Document Feeder or face down on the glass.

Touch the Folder icon.

Step 2

Select PDF FOLDER in the list of folders; this is the folder you will save your documents in.

Step 3

Select File name and input your file name using the screen keyboard. Use a filename that you will easily recognize.  

Touch OK.

Step 4

Touch Start to send your documents to the network folder.

Step 5

Touch No to exit and not save current settings.

Step 6

Your file will be automatically sent to this folder on the network: \\files\pdfs and will have the filename you gave it.


Ninja Says - Net Neutrality is Bad

Andrew Webb sent me a link to the Ask a Ninja website. While the Ninja is completely absurd, in the video below he is referring to a pretty serious subject, net neutrality. What is net neutrality? You can find Google's definition here. Or a wikipedia definition here. One of the things that makes the inter so great is it's ability to empower people to share whatever information they want with whoever they want. Imagine if you could only see the channels of content that Comcast or Qwest would let you subscribe to. No bueno. At the end of the day I'll never explain the topic as eloquently as the wise ninja.



This is Crazy!

Every morning I get a daily sale update via email from I'm flipping through the latest deals, and I see the OCZ Neural Impulse Actuator. Huh? Say what? has very little information on the product they have on sale, which made me really intrigued, so I went to the manufacturers website. The product was a little difficult to find on the web site. This is because I didn't really know what it was so I didn't really know where to look for it. I finally found it here. They say yo can use it for gaming, but it's not really clear how, other than being able to fire a weapon with the blink of an eye. I quote "Predefined profiles included with the software allow the gamer to develop their own nia—memory to launch the desired behavior of their character and shoot with the “blink of an eye”, without lifting a finger." Interesting, or as my friends in Miami say, muy interesante.

Maybe this explains it a little better:

Or maybe this:

Somehow the whole thing is kind of creepy.
