In my last post I shared how I changed the READY message on an HP network printer. In this post I wanted to share Twenty of my favorite Outrageous Printer Status messages. I came across these statements as I was researching my last post.
Lately, I’ve been having some ”HP printer fun” at work. There is an old hack that can be performed on many HP printers that allows you to customize the status message of the printer. It’s accomplished by telneting into the printer on port 9100 and changing the Ready message to something outrageous.
As Facebook approaches 800 million users, every business is in on the Facebook trend. Everyday, I see more businesses with signs out front that say “Like Us on Facebook”. As a customer I have to ask, “what’s in it for me”? Just because you have a Facebook page doesn’t mean I’m going to “like you”.…
While writing an email today, I typed “Have the user login”. I stopped, looked at what I had typed and thought, “That doesn’t look right”.
I realized there had to be a proper spelling or syntax for what I was trying to type. I found the answer through a Google search (or is it googlesearch).
To log in is a verb. When you tell a user to “log in”, use two words.
Login is a noun; although as Wikipedia notes, it’s used like an adjective in compound nouns. “Check the login page”.
Armed with the knowledge of how to “log in” to the” login page”, I completed my email and moved on a smarter SysAdmin.
The same rules apply for log out and logout, log on and logon, log off and logoff.
