Anatiferous blog | Move every zig.


Welcome to Anatiferous: Using barnacles to make geese since 1689!

Howdy! This is my (William Reading's) webpage. At the moment, I only have this blog script and my gallery up, but I hope to get more stuff on this page at some point, or so I thought when I created this site years ago. Updates and shiny new copy to eventually go here. If you'd like to contact me to point out that I've done something to break XHTML/CSS standards or heaven forbid--look at my Vita--drop me a line at my e-mail address bill +spam @ [ELEPHANT] Simply remove "+spam", the spaces and the pachyderm along with its brackets and that address will reach me. I'm also available on Jabber/GChat/AIM/MSN with the same address above.


Fixing alignment on hp cp1215 when used with the foo2zjs driver

Filed under: — bill @ 1:03 pm

Change the ppd in /etc/cups/ppd/HP_Color_LaserJet_CP1215.ppd to have:
*HWMargins: 18.00 14.40 18.00 14.40

(On mine it was 12.00 12.00 12 12)

Restart cups and re-add the printer.


Apparently this doesn’t work

Filed under: — bill @ 10:29 am

I bought a Samsung SCH-LC11 from Verizon because they’re $20 on eBay and need a few settings tweaks to work with LTE.

According to Verizon, they don’t actually work on prepaid, and yet, I’m on prepaid LTE right now with it. I haven’t seen the 3G light go active, but it otherwise seems to work fine on LTE. I called to ask about registering it online to top-up and the rep on the other end of the line told me that it’s not supposed to work and that this device is for post-paid only. I guess they’re not used to people just sticking SIM cards into devices and having them work.

Clearing Voicemail Indicator in Android without Calling yourself

Filed under: — bill @ 9:35 pm

I was swapping around sim cards and ended up in this weird state where I don’t have any voicemail accounts, but ended up with an indicator. The easiest way is to stop the phone app and clear the data on it from the Android Application Settings under “All". In the event that it’s the carrier’s system that’s out of sync, you’ll still be stuck here, but in the event that your phone is waiting for a magic sms that will never arrive to clear it, this is quite helpful.
