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
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?
