    Hi SMS,

    At first I thought you were "clueless in San Jose",
    but then I read your wonderful post, and I realized you
    were right on the money!

    One thing to add to your "choose your printer carefully" advice.

    This HP web site tells us that there is no way to override the
    drop dead date in "some" HP printers.

    http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&docname=c01764161

    Trust me, I've tried (on the d135).
    It just can not be done.
    Forget CMOS resets.
    Forget motherboard shorts.
    Forget changing the printer time.
    Forget turning off the ink-drop counting mechanisms.
    Even forget the otherwise venerable trick of cycling of three cartridges.

    The only solution (for those printers) is to NEVER BUY THOSE PRINTERS!
    Otherwise, attempting to re-fill the chipped ink will be sheer hell.

    So that others benefit, we should add that list of printers to avoid
    in order to eliminate hell in your otherwise wonderful instructions!

    I've got an HP7280 and it will accept "out of date" ink carts, you
    just have to agree to the printers admonition that using them might
    void the warranty. I've had one ink cart refilled at Costco and they
    appeared to have replaced the chip on it. This is for the 02 series
    of ink carts. Print head is separate.
