Information Systems Agency

Every document we create here at the JITC (subsidiary of the Dumbass Information Sabotage Agency) is designed so that, when printed doublesided, every new section starts on an odd page. This is a common convention in reports and books, so no problem. The strange thing to me has been that we never print things double-sided. Oh, we've got dozens of duplexing printers, but it has been decreed by our many bosses that they prefer to receive documents that use as much paper as possible.

Last week, the LAN ops guys reset all the duplexing printers so they would duplex by default (the default had been the opposite for years). Now, my cow-orkers are bitching that the damned printer is printing everything doublesided. Do they have difficulty with books, which must be overly complicated to them?

Yet another way in which our tax dollars are wisely shepherded.
