Misadventures in Toner

We aren't sure how long we've been without, but it's certainly becoming an adventure.... Our library printer, as I'm sure many of you know, is the only color printer on campus that our students have access to.

Due to the usual overwhelming schedule that occurs at the beginning of a semester, we allowed our inventory of ink to run low and then run out! As soon as this problem was recognized (i.e. as soon as our printer stopped working for lack of cyan ink), we submitted a supply order. See, even librarians have their imperfections!

Ink cartridges finally arrived today, after about a week of going without color printing, and we all got very excited!

Until we realized the toner was for an HP 4600 and we're running a 4700.

How long will this continue? How long will we be forced to print monochromatically? How long must we go without Cyan Ink?
We'll get back to you on that one.
