While I was in Panama City, I was able to buy a new printer to replace the old Canon printer that had died. I purchased an HP C6280 printer.
It has a built in network connection, so I am not able to print from any of my PCs via the local area network. It took me a while to get Linux setup to use the network, but that problem has now been solved. I haven’t tried the scanner via the network.
It also has slots to accept all digital camera memory. Now if I can use it to load the photos into my PCs I will be one happy camper.
What amazes me is that I bought it cheaper in Panama City than it is selling in the US at this time. So far I like the gift I gave myself.
