This Week in the Copier/Office Equipment Industry 10 Years Ago Fourth Week of September 2004

In the world of the fictional television series Lost, Oceanic Flight 815 goes missing somewhere over the Pacific Ocean en route to Los Angeles from Sydney, Australia.


I found this interesting since flight MH370 went missing many months ago. I have my own theory, and since there is no evidence, I guess every theory can be plausible. I believe the plane was shot down over the Straits of Malaysia by the Malaysian government. Once they erred, the covered up.  Anyway, back the popular threads from ten years ago on the Print4Pay Hotel!

          I think you're right Jomamma. This may be where we have to draw the line and say, "hey, you have to contact your IT person. It works fine on all of the other PC's." But, I think this may be an ongoing thing. MS updates their OS and Ricoh has to create a

          There were also some changes in the fax capabilities in the e version.  If I remember correctly it had to do with the fax forwarding (tsi routing)to different in-boxes etc.  Basically, Ricoh launched the 2035/2045, and then made improvements to the
