uselessness commented on the word paper-use
Haha, reminds me of my boss at the company where I maintain the corporate web site...Him: "Print out every page of the site, I'll write the changes I want on the printouts and give them to you, and then you can type what I wrote and upload the revisions."Me: "How about if I just e-mail you the digital files and let you modify them in Word? Then you can e-mail them back to me."Him: "But I want to use Sharpies and highlighters in lots of pretty colors!"Me: "Word has bold text and lots of pretty colors."Him: "Oh? Really? Show me."

Oh, I feel so virtuous. I've already changed my margins. Now if everyone would just print on both sides....*delighted to be cutting down on worldwide paper use*

I'm sorry but the concept of paperless office has gone all 404 on us. Why don't we email the slack bastards who sold this pup at firstname.lastname@example.org and give them a piece of our mind?

Dear god -- how much paper is the average office worker using?What ever happened to the paperless office? I probably use 14 sheets of paper a year. Put my printer in the closet, I use it so rarely.Then again, I'm neither an office worker, nor average :-)
"Paper-use: The average office worker could save 475 sheets of paper per year by reducing their margins from the default setting of 1 in to 0.50 in." - Ideal Bite, internet, Dec 2007.
