I do. I think that these are the best two things to ever have been invented. It's wonderful to be able to type out something and print it out, instead of having to write it out on paper.

I have 5 printers in this house: 3 of them are out of commission - 2 HP LaserJet 4Ms based on the Canon EX engine, and 1 HP Color LaserJet 4500DN based off the Canon EP-83 engine.
The other printers that are operating are an HP Photosmart Premium ePrint-enabled printer and a Canon ImageClass MF4150. The HP is the photo printer, the Canon is B&W.

Bitchin! 8O My school had one, they are huge. I have quite a few printers myself. The oldest is an Apple LaserWriter IIg from 1991, the newest is an HP OfficeJet Pro 8500 Premier from this year.

I do spend a lot of time on my laptop, but I wouldn't say that I'm obsessed with computers as much as I'm obsessed with the internet.

I'm more obsessed with things being in perfect order. Never mind the fact that my room tends to be a cluttered mess. :roll:

I can't live without my computer. I bought a new printer yesterday. I like to keep things in order.

It probably has the flu. Make sure there isn't any red on the paper.

I've been using PCs since 1984. The novelty has kind of worn off. I'm a typical woman on this--like a car is transportation to me, a computer is a tool. But I do like having nice, new shiny ones of both!! !

I have 3 computers--a desktop, a laptop and a netbook. I use them all. I'd rather have my computer than my cellphone, or any phone (I have Skype and a headset if the need arises). But I'm not obsessed with computers--it's just as far a communication and information tech goes, I really like them. And I'm totally a PC person. Screw Mac and Steve Jobs--I can at least get Vista's bugs fix without some snotty Apple guy telling me it must have been something iI did wrong.

And I heart my HP printer. i just wish it made better scans--but I guess that's what I get for buying the cheapest one. Still beats any Canon I've owned, especially one ink usage (the HP economy setting is awesome) and that one Dell printer I bought, I sent back after one week. Total crap.

I was obsessed with animals as a very early age, but later it was music and literature. Today I'm obsessed with Shakespeare, science, sci fi, languages and my cats.

To begin using up your supply of ink and driving you toward purchasing more just as rapidly as possible.

I used to like animals when I was little but I sort of lost that interest a long time ago but if I was in a relationship with someone who did; that interest would probably return. BTW Animals is listed 2wice in this poll.
I spend a lot of time online but I'm very far from great with computers; I mostly know basic common knowledge stuff; a typical high-school kid is probably much more skilled than me so I don't think I'm obsessed with computers. It's very seldom that I use a printer so I'm defiantly NOT obsessed with printers.
I don't know jack about tractors either.

I voted for "Things in order perfectly". when putting away dishes; I'm very picky about how their stacked/organized. I'm like that with other things to
