    Wink HP Printer Display Hack

    This one is very, very old. But I just heard of it today and wanted to share it with the people who haven't heard about it before
    It is a simple perl script that enables you to change the display text on most HP printers. Credit goes to the author of www.kovaya.com
    The perl script can be found here: http://kovaya.com/perl/show.cgi?program=hpsetdisp.pl

    Yea, I used to make ours say "Jared touches me there". Eventually I was locked out of the printers.....
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    Thumbs up Re:

    DeathRay..this is awesome. I tried it on an HP Laserjet 4200/4300. It worked!
    Had to restart the printer to make it go away!

    Great find!
    Thanks for sharing!

    No, but if you ever seen the quiznos commercials with the guy that was raised by wolves, our Jared looked a lot like that guy.

    I would do that here with our printers, but I don't think anyone here would find it as funny as I do. Most of the people that use those printers are lacking in the sense of humor department.
    A third party security audit is the IT equivalent of a colonoscopy. It's long, intrusive, very uncomfortable, and when it's done, you'll have seen things you really didn't want to see, and you'll never forget that you've had one.

    You need those Enron stickers for the shredders too.
