Last night I was up late working and hit file/print without thinking.
Let me tell you, a laser printer sure does sound loud when the house is quiet and everyone is asleep. The rachet sound of the printer starting up and the hum of it printing out (I clicked and clicked but couldn’t stop it) — combined with the surprised dogs barking at an unfamiliar night noise — made me a VERY popular person at the breakfast table.
Of course, we COULD get this old dot matrix Printronix model 6040L. Can you imagine working next to this thing all day? The guy who posted this on YouTube called it the World’s Second Loudest Printer. I can’t imagine what the loudest one sounds like. Oh wait, yes I can. So can you — just hit file/print around 3am.
