Epic. Fail. - Mostly, it is...

09:40 am - Epic. Fail.
Come for breakfast, brighten up your day. Also be careful because this is Sparta!
It was awhile ago.
This sort of thing irks me. Actually, multiple sorts of things because there's more than one thing wrong with this. Not that it's the first time Lexmark's done something like this.
If you can't make it out, the notice reads:
IMPORTANT! PLEASE READ BEFORE OPENING:
Opening this package, installing the printing device software, or using the print cartridge(s) inside, confirms your acceptance of the following license/agreement: The patented print cartridge(s) contained inside is/are licensed for a single use only and is/are designed to stop working after delivering a fixed amount of ink. A variable amount of ink will remain in the cartridge when replacement is required. After this single use, the license to use the print cartridge terminates, and the used cartridge must be returned only to Lexmark for remanufacturing, refilling or recycling. If you buy another cartridge in the future that is sold subject to the above terms, you accept such terms as to that cartridge. If you do not accept the terms of this single use license/agreement do not buy this product. A replacement cartridge sold without these terms is available through www.lexmark.com.
I have a sore throat. It's currently at the minor irritation stage. In hopes of it not getting any worse, I'm doing the staying in bed with warm blankets and fluids thing even though I don't really have to at this point. Only two more weeks and I'd have passed an entire winter season without a cold or cold like ailment.
On a related note, I tried to use my handheld to post this. Unfortunately, the browser that comes with the Palm Lifedrive (Blazer) is terrible for viewing LiveJournal with. The LJ client for posting mobile entries isn't working for me either. I may end up getting something like a WiBrain B1 or Raon Everun for portable computing. Problem being that as a PIM, Palm's performance is so much better.

P.S.: Let me amend that statement about Blazer. It is better with some profiles than others, and OperaMini is worse because at least Blazer doesn't make the LifeDrive restart when I try to view.
