Glad it got you going. And I agree, but sometimes errors like that hang around because of the inner-workings of the code. Sometimes the program does things it shouldn't be ABLE to do, and there's a generic message that handles those errors.
For HP Printers, there is a message that comes up when the printer returns error codes that shouldn't exist together. Things like the printer getting a "paper-empty" message on tray 2...when there isn't a tray 2 attached. The "Printer on fire" message isn't seen often...but is in the code (at least it used to be). :)
