Good Thing I Checked

This evening, I set the printer (which is located a fair distance away) to printing 500 copies of the Costume-Con site selection ballot, figuring that should be more than enough to handle anyone who would want to vote this year. A little while later, I went down to the printer room and could hear it continuing to crank out copies. I looked in the output tray and thought it looked like it had printed more than 500 already. I went and checked: I'd typed too many zeroes and the printer was merrily on its way toward printing 5,000 copies of the ballot, or roughly eight times the pre-registered attendance of the convention. I trotted back down to the printer room and killed the print job. Fortunately, I don't think I overprinted too badly.
