On the Windows 7 PC, Share the printer

1. Select the “Start/Devices & Printers
2. Right click the printer and select “Printer Properties”
3. Click the Sharing tab.
4. Enable the checkbox “Share this printer”
5. Make sure the printer name has no spaces and simple, e.g. this is mine – lh5040
6. Also a good idea to specify the ip address of the machine connected to the printer.
Sometimes the ip can change and that will stop the printer from working on the Mac, E.g. mine is set to

On the Mac running OS X

1. Open “System Preferences” – “Print & Fax”
2. Click “+” to add a printer
3. Under the IP Tag, Protocol: “Line Printer Daemon – LPD”

5. Queue: (is the share name of the printer on the windows machine, in my case its “lh5040”.
Do not leave the queue area blank as the comment tell you, do the above

and on my Leopard G5 sys I used the HL5040 Cups as it didn’t have the Gutenprint option.
8. Click the “Add” button

New Look Website

Hi all.

Welcome to the new look website.

I have changed it to a Word press type site. The reason I have dose this is mainly ease of updating the news (blog)  the photos and also some of the content section of the site.

The content on the old site was not to bad to update but the news and photo areas where a pain.

Also the website had a bit of an old look about it.

The new site now also works great on a mobile device, I have tested in on iPhone, iPad and a 7″ tablet.

The Blog area now is on the front page, the place you come to first. I think this is the way of the web now and that is the page that will change the most. (New Content)

That’s why users will come back, to see new content, not much use returning to a site that is always the same.

So have a look around.

Also you will see links on the right to follow me and also links to the Flickr photo gallery, there you will see some cool pics of various nice things I have been working on.

Idd also like to thank Richard Stocks for supplying me with a server for me to setup the site before making it live and all his data base help.
