Staples® All In One Cart

Link: http://www.staples.com/Staples-All-In-One-Cart/product_708575

Because of the high pitched whine of the fan in the Open box TR5M-BP I wrote about....I had gotten to thinking about finally getting a small printer stand to go next to Zen. So, I had been eyeballing one on staples.com, and trying to decide what else I would get to get free shipping.

While browsing last week, I spotted a really good price on a new label maker (my old one having run out of tape....and it has always been a peeve that it isn't the laminated kind like the older deceased label maker had....) ... where the sale price was less than new tape for my old label maker (a new M tape)...it probably doesn't include that much length in the starter (TZ) tape it comes with....but should be good enough for now. And, then the other thing was I've been meaning to restock on bottled water at home..... So, I ordered 3 cases...

I delayed ordering until Saturday, hoping to get the order to show up sometime yesterday (after my dentist appointment, had taken the whole day off so not to have to walk back to work in the heat). Well, the water and label maker arrived on Tuesday instead...and by some area courier for Staples, instead of UPS. Actually, more used to a local delivery service fulfilling office store orders than UPS...though it tended to be that way living in Columbus, Ohio...where they have many local stores around the city and probably warehouses too. While there's a local Staples here....thought there was going to be an Office Depot or OfficeMax coming....not everything is stocked here, so some stuff comes by UPS from Kansas City.

I meant to leave a note on Wednesday, since there was a good chance that UPS would show up while I was at the dentist....but I ended up being rushed to get to dentist...so I forgot. Fortunately, the UPS guy left the printer cart box by the door (maybe he saw me when I was walking into the dentist office...)

With the other things that happened yesterday....I didn't quite get around to fully assembling it as I had intended....was interrupted by work and that pretty much ate up the rest of the evening (also while I was doing my Wednesday night church thing and later IHOP with some friends).

But, finally finished it earlier today... now to clear a spot for it.

The plan was to put the TR5M-BP on a shelf on it...so that it would be pointed in a direction so that it would be less noisy (and the open back/front should get better airflow that it's getting now on bookcase shelf.) Though at some point the sensor fan I got from Amazon will show up...so don't know if I still plan to do this or not.

Though once I get the cart situated.. I think I'll move my HP Photosmart 8450xi back to the livingroom, where it should be.... And, we'll see if the laser printer I've been dreaming about ever materializes next to TARDIS instead. Was originally planned as a summer purchase, but more likely it'll be my next Christmas present (where Zen was the present I got last Christmas....financed on a 6-month no interest...which is why I thought printer would happen now. But, that was before I decided that I want to do more travel (having not done any since last November...)

Wonder if I need to move my UPS to make cart fit....

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
