Home of the Grumpy Old Tech

Let's get down to few simple facts that you might have to just accept.

I'm technically correct.

I mean, when I talk tech I don't drift off into space coming up with things that cannot be explained or reproduced.

It's the difference between a Book Smart Tech and a Hands On Tech. The best of all I have both worlds and have had some of the best mentors in the electronic industry.

So when your content or antics hit the Grumpy Old Tech section you know you've pushed the buttons for many like me.

Because of the content in this section I must warn you I do not hold back on the technical terms you might have heard from a US Marine Drill Instructor with a grumbling tone.

If you notice a few G.O.T episodes missing it's because I'm holding them back for the movie rights or a rewrite.

All manufacturers are true but the players names to include business have been changed slightly in accordance to privacy rules posted online at some .gov site.

Enjoy

When it is a Print Head issue it's simple, toss the printer and purchase a new one. But when the same type of printer errors again that the print head has failed you need to start thinking Manufacture issues. Canon Got me Twice, but the worst part of it was I could have purchased a new printer just with the wasted printer ink each time! The MX series Pixma Canon Printers don't last the test of time and in my opinion the only good thing they had was the full duplex ADP scan feature. Sad thing is when your printer fails you can't scan. TRASH Engineering!

Episode G.O.T. 1.6


One seriously bad proof of ownership issue with SonicWall devices. Lesson learned, and never again will I hold licenses on a device that is physically not in my location. Lost 2 year support subscription and 2 VPN licenses due to a Support Transfer ... Unreal the way they transferred paid products from my SonicWall account to another based on solely physical possession. Pawn shops are going to love this new transfer policy.

Grumpy Old Tech is the title of the place I'm using to publish things only old school technicians could post. Need to complain about new technology? Grumpy Old Techs do it all the time. We do it for your own good. Why? Because we know what works and know what's going to fail. That's the difference between Grumpy Old Techs and Corporate Marketing Departments.
