I needed to send a signed contract out to a new client.
I said I was going to the Post Office to fax it.
Client responds: "Ok, but do it this week - we're moving next week, and after that we don't have fax machines."
Went to the Post Office, "Hi I need to fax a document"... "Sorry, we don't have a fax machine".
"Any idea who does?"
"Um... not really".
I decided to get a scanner.
Except the only scanner available was an industrial-strength one which could scan 250 pages a minute. For just as many Euros.
So I got a "multipurpose device", even though I already had a printer and rarely needed a photocopier.
Just a big clash of obsolescence all round.
