Tinkering with Bamboo Paper

I recently downloaded Bamboo Paper for my Windows 8 devices and have fallen in love with it.  I've been using it exclusively on my Asus Windows RT tablet and have been blown away.  I'm still working out all of the nuances and what it has to offer, but I'm quite impressed with the clean lines, variety of tools, and the way it handles color.  I've been using my finger versus a stylus, but hopefully will have a new stylus in soon to really test the full functionality of the app.  I've worked up some simple pieces as I play with it.  While there isn't an option for layers or syncing, it's a fun app to use on the go.  And it's easy enough to export the file to something like OneDrive and then import on another machine.  Expect a full review soon.



Fix It! HP Officejet Pro 8600 Won't Print Photos


Picture it...you're a proud parent with access to a decent printer, high quality photo paper, and pictures of your adorable baby that absolutely have to be printed with no questions asked.  So you fire up that printer, load up your high quality, costs-an-absurd-amount-of-money photo paper, select the photo of your baby that you painstakingly adjusted, tweaked, and edited to Hell and back, and press print.

Suddenly, the printer whirs to life, things are moving, and you get that flutter of butterflies in your stomach like you cast a magical spell that would make Merlin himself envious.  A minute goes by, everything is still whirring away.  You're a little nervous now.  What could be going on?  Is it thinking about how best to capture the magic of my baby?  Is it even capable of capturing the grandeur of my baby?
