Well this is interesting timing.. I've been working for the last couple of weeks on a new Arduino project, a deluxe espresso scale.
I'm having a blast.  I'll put up a youtube video soon.. Here's a quick photo:

First version was on Arduino Uni; here's a slightly newer version running on Mega:

There is a button to "Reuse the last file list"..

Bob Dylan has a cover of (Johnny Cash's) Ring of Fire that is one of my favorites.. I can't listen to any other cover:

Yeah the dried ink was what was really killing me with the rarely used inkjet.  Every time you use an inkjet that hasn't been used in a while, the printer actually dumps out a bunch of ink into a "waste pad" in the machine to help clean out the nozzles.

Remarkably, the color laser printer still has 4 different toner cartridges in it -- it's remarkable how almost the entire cavity of this small machine is mostly toner:

I am pretty sure that the laser toner is cheaper -- but the clincher is that inkjet ink dries up in a major way, and inkjets have to dump quantities of ink into a waste reservoir after periods of disuse, which really exacerbates things.  Laser toner is in powder form so doesn't seem to have that problem.
