I have a Samsung SCX-4500 (not W) laser printer/scanner, a Linksys WRT54GS v7.0 router, and a 13" MacBook Pro. Is there a way (using DD-WRT or something else) that I can print and scan over my wireless network?

I have recently purchased a Heidelberg Windmill platten press and am starting a letterpress and design company. I am a Graphic Designer by trade so I have the skill, all I am lacking is some insight into creating a solid business plan and help with suppliers etc... within Canada.
What experience do you have with getting plates made in Canada?
Do you use Polymer plates?
Getting die's made?
Any information above and beyond is much appreciated.

Does anybody have a recommendation for a printshop in the northwest United States that could print a large number of cmyk stickers with a custom diecut? The estimate I got from my usual vendor was crazy expensive.

this should be pretty simple - Ive got a HUGE image (72" x 96") and want to print it. Thats going to be REAL expensive to print as one piece so i was hoping to find some software that would chop it into many 8x10" pieces that I can then print in a standard printer. Suggestions? [more inside]

OS X: I want to batch print all the files in a source-code library. They are actionscript files, which means they are text files that all end in a .as extension. The files are in a complex directory structure (one root folder but files in multiple subfolders), and there are non .as files that I don't want printed. When the files print, I need some kind of separator ( spaces, asterisks, new page...) between each file. [more inside]

Innovative Books: I am looking to compile a list of the most innovative uses of the book format. Books that break the mould in their layout and design, perhaps books that use online systems to extend their content value or push their form into new places. I am most interested in narrative and theory, but any book that is interesting (artist books etc.) would be really appreciated. [more inside]

My grandmother just gave me an old framed print of a 1903 painting
entitled "Summer-Girl" by a James Arthur. I haven't had any luck finding out who Mr. Arthur was, but he seems to have been a capable artist and popular enough to have prints made of his work. There's a torn look to the top of the print, as though it were ripped from a book of prints, but I can't find any info about that book or where the image comes from. If anyone knows more about James Arthur, this picture or his other work, I would be most grateful. Thanks!

Router Question: My USR MAXg router now has troubles connecting to the internet (connection to cable modem fails...not the modem). In addition to routing and wireless, it also is a USB print server. The router intermittently loses connection to the internet...router problem. Question: Can I buy a cable router to use for the router function, and still use my MAXg for print serving and wireless?
