Yeah I joined a Facebook group full of grandmas and they mainly use them to cover up ugly walls in their garden. There’s some super realistic designs out there.

And at $22 a shower curtain, it’s not going to break the bank.

Once bunnings reopens and I can legally Obtain fence palings��, I’m going to knock up some oversized picture frames and make the side of the shed look nice.

This frame was made from junk pile fence palings and the shower curtain was stapled on with an office stapler - so there is room for improvement

Turns out the cartridge has 2 clear viewing port holes for the printer sensors to "guess" how much ink is left.

And guess what - the sensors usually err on the side of caution (By about 1000 pages).

A couple of squares of black duct tape (one on either side) fool the sensors so you can get those last 1000 pages.

Job done - now my printer is working again
Just printed out some Doctors forms and it occurred to me it had been a while since my printer lied and said it was out of ink

Still cranking out copies 4 years later
