Same with this cartridge.

I just found the blotter... stuck to one of the wheels on my chair.

It's now in the printer :)

It's a little blue strip of tape which seems to be there just to stop
the cartridge from leaking in transit.

I think I have the datasheet for the cartridge around here somewhere...
If not, I certainly have a copy of the "Inkjet Applications" book which
covered it.

One of these days I should pick up a cartridge carriage and have a play.
That said, I've got a Thinkjet cart with wires soldered on as a "who
knows if this'll work" experiment.
