    Re: Most interesting copier location

    If there were an interesting place on Ft. Bragg, they would probably make someone like me sign papers saying something like, Don't look around, don't ask questions, don't notice things, you were never here, we were never here, don't talk about things you never saw, ect.

    However, My town was founded in the early 1700's. The market house in the center of town was the original town hall, and was where my state ratified the constitution, the first in America. There are still a lot of houses built before the civil war. I have copiers in many of them being used as businesses. There is a tower that marks one of the 4 corners of an armory that was built in 1835. It was burned along with a good part of town by General Sherman on his march. In one of the old houses there are iron bar cages in the basement. The house owners thought at first that they may have been used to keep slaves, but later found out that the house was built by one of the armory commandants and the cages were used to keep weapons.

    The best arguement against democracy is a 5 minute conversation with the average voter... Winston Churchill.

    Re: Most interesting copier location

    Back in the day I used to fix collators and folders, had a secure site where you had to call at least 45 minutes in advance of arriving so they could cover all printed material in the (very big) room. The folder/stitcher took the output of the collator and made a booklet, non standard paper size they cut on site. I'd ask for test material and they'd hand cut some samples (groan), I'd fart around adjusting things - all side guides and straps etc. were almost infinitely adjustable, then when I got it running OK I'd have to step outside so they could run some of the 'real' material. I'd cool my heels for an hour or so, unable to leave because of security concerns, then they'd call me back in and say 'It's still doing it' GRRRRR - I had to troubleshoot by clairvoyance 'cause I never got to see any of the actual stuff they ran, I think it was the daily code books for secure radio communication, but that is just a guess.

    The most usual thing was the big Bostitch wire stitcher heads, I got pretty good at rebuilding those and always had a supply of the 'swivels' on hand.

    Nothing works quite so well that I can't totally disable it by trying to make it a little better.

    Hehe, luckily i did not go into any of those areas but you do get breathalyzed in and out. You go into a small entrance and exit room where you cant get out if you don't have your tag or if you fail the test.
    All automated stuff blow here to exit!
    Wonder what will happen if you give off a good fart it there, would you still pass the test with the methane and all.

    Re: Most interesting copier location

    I once installed a Konica 7075 (percursor of the bizhub 920, I believe similar in size to the actual body of the 1052) on a magazine stand whose owner also wanted to make some copies. The area was so tiny that the machine was sold without any finishing options just because there wasn't any space for it.

    Glad I never had to PM it. I can only imagine.

    About prisons: The ones over here seem pretty relaxed compared to what I read so far.

    Once went over the the local prison to see a machine.

    First hand over the cell to the first guard - I'll get it on the way out. Okay, I guess.

    Then the metal detector. Take keys, coins, whatever and go through. Not a beep. Fine.

    Okay, "open up your tool case". "Well," I think, "this is going to be a short call." I mean, what can I possibly have here that *cannot* be used as a weapon? The cotton swabs are my only guess.

    I open the bag wide, showing the assortment of screwdrivers, pliers and all the pointy stuff you know. Guard looks over, shrugs, and tells me "okay, you may go".

    That left me surprised - specially when instead of an escort they just point me vaguely in the direction I should head to.

    Apart for that, a perfectly normal call.

    Here even taking your phone into the building is verboten. They expect you to keep it locked in your car unless you were dropped off, then they will have you lock it in a locker in the lobby, but they don't like it. We keep a list of what is in our tool kits that goes on the paperwork. It's supposed to be checked going in and going out, but that doesn't always happen.
