    They didn't, as stated Dermot7 already it's actually a side effect of it sloppily depositing executables in special directories.

    Paper nothing... with the cost of ink this could hurt a lot more than a tray full of paper. If they ran full page color printouts it could cost quite a bit in lost supplies. :(

    They should run a continual NYAN NYAN RAINBOW CAT print job, where the printer will detect when it's nearly out of paper it will print the CAT, otherwise pages and pages of rainbows.
