    I used to have no problem printing to my parents' shared printer when they had an XP computer. Their new computer is wtfVista and now I can't print. I've tried several different SMB URIs and I even tried enabling LPD on the Vista machine and using LPD. It's just fucking broken.

    Why is this even a problem? It's been like 15 years since Windows for Workgroups, why the FUCK can't they figure out how to make the simplest shit like file and print sharing work? Goddamn fuck Microsoft. :ugh:
