The HP Printer Display Hack (with financial goodness)

The HP Printer Display Hack article has been posted to the Coding4Fun site.  This is an article and application that I wrote that lets you display a stock price on the display panel of an HP (or compatible) laser printer.

The app is written in C# with WPF and it periodically checks the current price of your favorite stock and sends a PJL command to the printer to put that price on the display.  It comes with a Windows Installer, written with WiX.

 

You can read the article at Coding4Fun.  The source code and a precompiled installer are up on CodePlex,  I would like to thank Brian Peek for letting me steal borrow some of the TweeVo code for the UI bits.
