Printer Usage Policy

To all users of the patch,

McNally is the laser printer(HP4250dtn), located in the far corner of the patch. We will be keeping track of the amount of pages printed by each user to this printer. Each user will be limited to 400 pages of laser output per semester.

Printing (from the shell prompt) is done as follows:

lpr -P mcnally <filename>

If everything is set up right on a machine, you should also be able to use file>print from the menus in graphical mode.

In addition, we ask that you be courteous and NOT print all 400 pages in one day. Remember that the printer has its limitations and printing too many pages at once will slow it down, along with forming a queue of annoyed peers.
