I Love Its Part 2....

Ever hear of a little machine called the E707 series Postage Meter by Pitney Bowes, also known as the Personal Post? Well, it's a handy dandy little machine allright, but here's the I Love It...

About 2/3's of its usage, the machine will let you know that the ink cartridge is running out of ink. That in itself isn't the I Love It. Here's the part that fits: After it lets you know this, it will ask you if you wish to perform a print test. Now, ANY BUTTON except the "no" button will start the print test. And what is the test? A series of lines that use up MORE INK than if you used it for postage. Now out of 10 times, I will probably accidentally hit ANY BUTTON but the "no" button and start the print test. Astoundingly, the cartridge usually lasts for about 3-4 weeks after the first "running out of ink" message. But still, isn't there ANY way to test if there's ink left than to USE UP MORE INK?
