Computers were so much better in the old days

Well, not quite, but, as my dad points out, at least they were fairly reliable and the printers worked.

In the bookshop where I work, we only recently upgraded our computer system from DOS to Windows. The new system has some advantages - being able to use familiar Windows programs and use the Internet being the main ones, but it also meant that we had to replace our continuous paper printers with inkjets. Whilst it was always a bit tricky to order replacement continuous paper, it was cheaper than buying reams of A4 letter paper, and the ribbon ink cartridges lasted a lot longer than the very expensive ink-well-and-print-head cartridges that we have to buy now from HP.
