Hmmmm yeah I was also giving the brand new printer a test of printing a 
long document and what puzzles me is that in pringing all the even sides 
first those three blank pages got inserted and printing was interrupted 
1/2 way down pg 22 but the printer did not stop it simply fed those 
extra pgs.

Soooo, then in turning over the entire stack how did the printer know to 
skip those 3 blank pgs. Yet it did print from 1 to 21 correctly on the 
back side but totally skipped pg 23 and those blanks. See the puzzle?

I tried to read the log but the error occured back on Dec 14th and my 
var/log only goes back to the 20th .. Do you know if there is a way to 
see the 14th or is it gone?
