The Beast?

My new printer is taking so long and making so many strange sounds to "initialize" that I wonder if it might be "the beast" (or R2D2) It gurgles, clunks, taps, clicks, hisses, and more. It even has a screen telling me what it is up to.

Old printers never did this. You plugged them in, and they printed. Mysteries and opacities abound unnecessarily in the world of technology.

One man's mystery is another man's clear communique. You have to speak it's language!
