    Now you have one more!

    Practice makes perfect

    Wow! I'm impressed! How does that break down?

    That sounds like a familiar number ... We had a printer monitor software running at our office for a while. When I prompted it to "search" it ended up creating 65,536 "Remote Desktop Redirected Print" print jobs on each of the print drivers on the server. I still don't understand exactly how that worked, but it happened several times. =^..^=

    If you'd like a serious answer to your request:
    1) demonstrate that you've read the manual
    2) demonstrate that you made some attempt to fix it.
    3) if you're going to ask about jams include the jam code.
    4) if you're going to ask about an error code include the error code.

    I thought that number looked familiar too, so I just did a search.....



    HAVE YOU EVER WONDEREDwhy the number65,536 comes up so often?
    For example, why are there exactly 65,536 ports in the Windows operating system? Why are there exactly 65,536 vertical cells in Excel? Why is 16 bit color exactly 65,536 colors? Who decided this, or was it completely arbitrary?
    No, it wasn’t arbitrary. Here’s the answer: 65,536 is the product of 2 to the power of 16. Why use this particular product? Because it is the largest number that can be expressed by 2 eight-bit bytes of data. Therefore, if a programmer assigns 2 bytes to hold a given positive integer (whether that integer is a processor address in a supercomputer or a line on a spreadsheet) 65,236 will be as large as it can get. (At least with most older computer systems. The 32 and 64 bit systems may offer more choices for some things.)

    In some systems which are not setup to handle negatives the number 65536 was used to represent -1. This was frequently used when entering parameters for MFM and RLL hard drives.
