Great video of a cat "fixing" the printer.

I love it ;)

Serious related question now - my Canon Pixma ip5000 has recently started chewing paper when I ask it to duplex print. Anyone any idea how to clean the paper path on these as there doesn't seem to be any obvious way to disassemble the printer.

I am not sure about the printer you have, but for my HP I would have to use a cleaning kit like this:

And if I remember correctly, it's a single use cleaner and costs about $20

Actually, I would have thought that since animals work by instinct and so-called humans are supposedly (mostly) non-instinctual(?!) that the term insane can really only be applied to humans.

In fact, AFAIAC the whole planet would probably be better off if animals were running it   :P

Then again, some countries are already being run by animals  :huh:

Great little video. Not sure how they got the cat to do it, but it sure is funny. My sister got a kick out of it, too. :)

how many times do i have to warn you people!

you have to scour your posts with a fine tooth comb -- go over every word multiple times -- read it aloud to yourself -- get your friends to proof read it, and only then is it safe to post and have even a slim chance of escaping Chris' pun processing machine.

I found out a few weeks ago that my English 102 teacher absolutely hates puns. :o How can you like English enough to spend your life teaching it but not enjoy playing around with the words? :huh:

Doesn't enjoy golf, perhaps?

It would take some doing to find an English word or phrase you can't pun! Or Double Entendre for that matter...  ;D

Emergency computer repair job at the top of the slide -- send the system administrator cat on the double!

I agree with commenter Ben B.:
Quote
Unfortunately, there are three clips in there, two of which are repeated over and over. They’re plenty cute, all right, but there is only about fifteen actual seconds of video. Cats: megacute. Clipmaker: Lame.

Too bad the cat wasn't doing all that spastic pounding on a keyboard.

If he did, he'd probably have written a new web browser. ;)

Cats are normally smart enough to know when to give up! Maybe they were having fun... ;D
