Printers of Christmas past….

There has been a recent discussion on one of the mailing lists I am on concerning the securing of network printers from those that should not be printing to them.

One of the replies to this thread came from the brother of an old VAXer friend…

This is the ghost of print jobs past.
Next you’ll get print jobs showing current inventory.
Then finally you’ll get a print job showing the inventory 20 years in the future, followed by your own obituary.
At that point you will need to run around handing out free paper to everyone you’ve ever wronged.

It just tickled my fancy, is all…
