[kwlug-disc] Print server.

As a general service to my friends in the biz, I always try to keep at least one or two HP Print Servers on hand -- if you're ever in a pinch and need one, you can email me personally or give me call, and I might be able to help!

I believe I've got three on hand right now (including at least 1 three port unit).  It's rare to critically need one, especially a parallel one these days, but I've no doubt they're going to come in handy somewhere along the line all the same.

	All the Best,

	-Cedric
