  Note: The main printer at Nevis used to be called qms1, and then hp4300. In order that some old print commands will still work, the old queue names are still available.

The bw-research printer has three paper input trays: manual, upper, and lower. Typically, both the upper and lower trays are filled with plain white paper; for special jobs you can put transparencies, three-ho paper, or A4 (European metric) paper into the lower tray.

Note: As of Apr-2010, the upper paper tray on this printer is not working properly. Given the infrequency with which the printers are now used, this is not likely to be fixed anytime soon. *Do not put paper into Tray 2 of this printer!*

If any sheets are put into the manual bin (transparencies, for example) the printer uses it by default. Otherwise the paper comes from the upper printer bin, or the lower bin if the upper is empty. The correspondence is:

When you put three-hole-punch paper in the lower bin, it's commonly combined with the duplex option to print long documents that can be placed in looseleaf binders. For example:

color-research (or colour-research)

As the name implies, color-research is an HP2605 color printer. It is slower than bw-research (10 pages per minute). The color printer has three input trays, similar to bw-research: manual, upper, and lower. The manual "tray" is actually a single-sheet feeder in the front of the upper tray. The lower and upper trays are stocked with plain paper. It is capable of duplex printing.
