    Hundreds of copies of a bulletin flier insert. I'm so glad I bought a basic laser printer a year ago - the organizations I'm involved with require printouts to be brought every month to meetings, and there's always something going wrong with the inkjet.

    It was a list of passwords to get them out of my computer

    I don't even have a printer. I just go to Kinkos when I need something printed. This month, it was the paperwork I needed to apply for some benefits. Occasionally it's a knitting pattern too complex to bother writing out by hand. On average, I'd guess I print something out about once a month or less.

    Well, I'm a college student so I have printed anything since summer break started. As soon as classes start back up I'm sure I'll be printing again.

    I have no choice - I cringe every time I do it but at work, I have to print off all correspondence and file it. With my work - because it involves contracts and a lot of legal proceedings - we have to have a paper trail of everything we do.

    I use my printer very little. I just happened to use it yesterday. I was given a Jury summons and had to reply with a written letter asking to be excused.

    For the record, I've served on a jury in the past and have been summoned nearly every 2 years and I have done my duty. But now I have my own business and I am the sole support for my household. Short version, if I don't work, I don't get paid!

    The last time I printed something was a 'test page' to check if my printer was properly installed. I pretty much do all of my work online, and so have a paperless lifestyle 99% of the time.

    I always print stuff out for school, hacking tutorials, programming tutorials, ebooks, and other stuff.

    Oddly enough, I had to print out a picture of a parallel port with numbers marked so I could attempt a BIOS password recovery on an old Toshiba.
