I'm going to have a look at all our EU elected reps just to get the complete picture. Is Europe ready for Mick and his pink outfits? and the green jersies?

I haven't moaned in a while but I HAVE to moan about the printing process in the lexicon library.
So, I have 22 word documents on my drive, some in colour some B/W. As far back as almost 20 year ago I could select all the files, right click and print, that was it.
In the Lexicon you have to open all of the files and print separately, but you have to locate the right printer first for each one depending on colour or b/w, then click print and then get a six digit code for every one of them. THEN go to the printer and put your money in and type each code out one by one. I was tearing my hair out at the frustration of the whole process, an hour and a half to print them all out.
I asked the librarian if they was any way to batch print a lot of documents, no, frayed not and apparently it's the biggest complaint they get there.
I'm not surprised.

Rocker,

Q1: Why on earth would you chose a "library" for a print service (over, say, a filling station, or a laundry)?
Q2 Why print at all? Who needs paper?

Micheál, when I was doing my course I used to have to produce three copies of my essays, printed and bound and it used to give me grief trying to find a good binding service and printer with good presentation. We got a bit of a decent printer here last Christmas and that has been a godsend when we need anything printed.

Micheál, paper is a vital component for us to record important information as a backup, especially when computer hard drives go belly up!
Certainly, in my experience, the written word, when produced on a hard copy, in order to inform and illustrate
a message, is still empirically relevant.
Alas, paper is very cumbersome and costly to generate, print upon, purchase to distribute and store.
Everything has its disadvantages but the tangible written word has none.
