    Hacking Printer Priority

    I use my college's lab computer to print my documents. However, the print queue is so huge all the time that I usually get really late for classes.
    I can view the printer queue on my computer but can't modify the priority settings to make my documents print faster. Is it possible to hack this somehow?

    Hi,Anticode

    Yes you can, there are two methods that are failsafe:

    1. Get out of your "wanking chariot" half an hour earlier
    2. Buy the sysop a six-pack

    Otherwise you need Administrator rights.............and in certain environments, launch the job from the console in the machine room (priority = 0)

    But I did not say that of course

    However, the print queue is so huge all the time that I usually get really late for classes.
    You mean that you enjoy watching paint dry? errrrr and what do the other students do?????????????

    AAAAAHAHAHA! I'm stealing that one.

    Also print to another printer on the network if you can then just run down the the computer lab in the basement then run back up. Fun and exercise.
