Just noticed that all the Lexmark country sites are down.
Can't get into US, Canada, UK, France, etc....

Is there something happening we should know about?
What have they done now? ;-)

Works now. At least the Canadian site does. After leaving their
site unchanged for I don't know how long (been the same for as long as
I can remember), they seem to have finally gone and updated the site
layout. Presumably, you tried when they were uploading all the new
stuff to their servers.

Maybe it has something to do with an article this week in ZDNetUK:

"Speaking at a business computing conference in London, Stephen
Prentice, general vice-president of hardware research for Gartner,
estimated that printer owners are spending around £1,200 per litre on
ink.

"A new printer costs £110," said Prentice. "The cost of an ink cartridge
is £70. I worked it out and a litre of colour ink would cost £1,200.
That's more than Chanel No.5 or a good bottle of whisky would cost."

I don't know of any carts that cost *THAT* much. I can get a double set of
tanks for my R800 for £80 and for my i9950 for £30 (not including red and
green though, ta very much JetTec!)
