It’s tax time. Needed to print out hard copies of PDF tax docs emailed to me end of last week. Elderly laser printer connected to iMac. But iMac died last year. Hooked up cheapo replacement linux laptop to replace iMac. Laptop test prints fine. PDF’s print as garbage. Waste lots of paper trying different things, different browsers. Still garbage. Finally try downloading PDF’s to hard drive and print. Works.

Meanwhile, my couple of months old Kobo ereader’s battery has started draining abnormally fast - 100% to 5% in one hour. Trying factory reset. Unit charging. Will test. Meanwhile I will look up to see if it’s covered under warranty.

Between these two things, just trying to print some damn documents and troubleshooting an ereader with battery problems has taken up the better part of a day.

And we haven’t even gotten to the taxes yet.
