49.C02 Error on a Hewlett-Packard Printer

August 10th, 2010

With all of the back to school excitement, one of the things that gets frustrating is when technology isn’t quite working. One problem that has come up that has an easy fix is the 49.C02 code that I’ve seen repeatedly. The code means that the document that’s trying to print has a font that the printer doesn’t recognize. The easy solution is to reset the printer and change your font. Papyrus is a font we stay away from because many printers freak out at it. (My graphic designer friends can also breathe a sigh of relief that people are choosing to not use the Papyrus font.)

If resetting the printer doesn’t work, there’s probably a previous print job that needs to be cleared out.

Apple iBike

The world of Smart Bikes just got sleeker.

Imagine being able to map out your ride and to wirelessly share exercise info instantly. I’m not a big runner, so I haven’t tried the Nike + iPod thing, but this is pretty cool. If this bike truly responds to voice commands, which Apple has the power to do, we’re one step closer to my flying cars.

In other tech news, Google Wave got canceled. There’s irony in using Firefly quotes, a show that was canceled before it had run its course.

“Can’t stop the signal.”
