We just set up the printer to work with the print server built into our wireless router. It was an adventure. It started printing garbage (I may have set the wrong print driver); then the paper jammed; then it refused to respond to any requests at all. Things began to work only after we reset the printer, our router, and our respective print daemons. It will doubtless continue to work, now, until the full moon. Then we'll have to do a little ritual dance around the apartment to appease the Goat in the Machine.

I'm told the Goat in the Machine will be replaced by a more standard Ghost in the Machine in the next firmware release.
