The Verge: Best Printer 2023: just buy this Brother laser printer everyone has, it’s fine. I have a Brother printer in the same basic family; it scans, it prints. It’s a pain in the ass to connect to the wi-fi correctly. In the comment section of the post I found this on, a helpful user goes through the steps for setting up a fixed IP address and most crucially, setting up the printer correctly to pick that IP address up. I figured this out myself several years ago after wanting to throw the fucking thing out the window. Whatever happened to HP printers? they used to, um, just work.
Cleaning out the basement last weekend, I ran across all my old LEGO plans and bricks. Playing with Finn over the break, I got an urge to put a kit together, so I broke out some of my bricks and got this far in the kit before I had to stop. This is the Galaxy Explorer, one of the first-generation LEGO Space kits they sold, and the beginning of an addiction. I’ve got a bunch of key structural bricks tied up in old models I put together 20 years ago, so I’m going to have to cannibalize those to finish this one off.
