Just a few moments ago, the Canon printer i960 passed away.
There was a "living will" so no extraordinary measures were taken.
The printer would not start up and the yellow warning light blinked a 5 blink code which is representative of burned out heads or head.
The viewing will be next Monday morning at the edge of my driveway.
If you wish to attend, please arrive before 10:00 as the large hearse with the compactor in the back comes by about that time.
Coffee and cake is always available inside the home.
Please! No flowers or cards.

I'm surprised that Florida has no recycling laws for electronics. Many (most?) jurisdictions do but FL apparently has only guidelines to encourage keeping devices such as your dear departed out of landfills. I won't lecture on the related environmental problems.

I too have a recently departed i960. It sits in my garage waiting for me to take it to a local electronics recycling center. If it's not too late to save your i960 from the compactor hearse, I encourage you to send it to its final resting place in a more fitting manner. Wink

I hope you realize that the aforementioned funeral is tongue in cheek, and yes we do have the same rules. I actually have to call Waste Management and have a special pickup for the printer.

Tongue in cheek - yes, the funeral part was recognized. I was just wasn't sure about the part about the printer at the edge of the driveway waiting for trash pickup. Around here, that's too often the case as folks don't seem to realize it's not a good idea to put electronics curbside with the rest of the trash.

I envy you the special pickup. Around here it's up to the resident to find a suitable "resting place" and to provide the hearse.

Be well.
