Put your printer
on autopilot

You can forget the "paperless office" revolution promised by the Internet when you need a hard copy of information from the Web. As the saying goes, sometimes the only thing that will work is "smearing ink on dead trees," also known as printing.

If you want to make a regular check of a Web site and then get a printout to read later, there is a new way to do it.

A company famous for its printers, Hewlett Packard, has free software you can download at to get you under way.

Once installed, it will get regular news and Web information sent directly to your printer.

The whole operation works smoothly and it's free, except for all the paper and ink you will need to feed your printer.

The software is for Windows users only.

"Home on the Web" is a weekly Friday feature of the Star-Bulletin.
