"Replace Drum" Brother Laser Fax

Hi Hive: Our "Brother" laser Fax (Intelifax 2840) is giving us a "replace drum" message but fax quality is still quite good. Can we wait until the quality diminishes before we replace the drum, or will we harm the machine by waiting (which is what Office Depot told us). Thanks!

All-in-one printer/scanner/copier/fax recommendations ?

March 2013 edition ! A non-profit that I volunteer with is looking to buy a new all-in-one machine to do its printing, scanning, copying, and faxing for its office. Non-profit uses windows. Initial budget is $300-500. Other pluses: Dual-sided printing Most of the printing will be in b&w but will occasionally need to print in color (not for photos but for small logos on flyers, etc). What should I recommend to them ? Laser ? Inkjet, no right ? They'd rather not since space is at a premium there.

Faxing ballot when mailed absentee ballot not received

I'm voting absentee (first time). I sent the ballot last Monday and it left Oslo last Wednesday. According to my district website, it hasn't been received. If it's not in by say 5 pm their time (11 pm mine), do I fax my ballot using one the services listed here on lifehacker? Do I need to call or email someone first to let them know what I'm doing?

Should I send a cover letter with this fax?

Should I send a cover letter with this faxed hard copy job application that's due today, and if so, where can I find good, quick instructions on how to do so? The special details -- I originally filled out an application through an online system but it was inactivated as of two days ago. Online system didn't require resume or cover letter, and the application is very structured in what it asks for. Do I try to save HR & myself some time by skipping a cover letter, or do I make the extra effort to type something out in the next hour?

Dot-based "Fax Highlighter"? Am I insane?

When I was a kid, I found a bizarre pen at my grandmother's house. It was a marker with a roller on the tip and it created a dot pattern similar to zip-a-tone when you wrote with it. The ink was a dull purple, like Spider-Man's webbing in a comic book. She called it a "fax highlighter," but I've never been able to find such a thing in office supply stores or on the internet. It sure would be cool to have one for shading and creating a unique look in quick sketches. Help?

Unified Messaging: Fax, Voicemail, Storage - Help?

I am looking for a unified messaging service that would ideally provide fax (receive/send), voicemail, file storage, maybe email, ssl would be a big bonus. I've looked at several fax services, but they don't provide voicemail. I know there are many of these services available, but positive experiences and recommendations from Mefites would be most appreciated! Thanks in advance. BTW, $20 or under would be perfect.
