Mine (HL5259DN, maybe 7 or 8 years old) gronks but only for a little
while after I've put new paper in.  The paper doesn't curl more than I

I'm thinking the paper feeding might be getting a little less reliable
than it used to be, so I'm following this discussion with interest, but
I'll probably get another mono -- I usually manage to get somebody else
to do any color printing I need.

Of course you cannot really play a fugue in three continuous parts on
the violin, but by dint of doublestopping and dodging from one part to
another, you can evoke a hideous ghost of a fugue that will pass
current if guaranteed by Bach and Joachim.

Duffin's _How Equal Temperament Ruined Harmony_
