Here's a little story to amuse you and to illustrate DefPrin.
John travels to a number of sites at different locations where he is able to plug his laptop into the corporate network in the local business centre and use the printers there.
At each site he has to remember to change his Windows Default Printer to one that is actually there if he wants to do any printing.
One day he happily clicks on the Print button in his word processor program to print out a confidential report he has been preparing for his boss about the reorganization they have been planning.
Unfortunately John had forgotten to change his Default Printer from the one he was using yesterday at the factory, with the result that the report is printed over there while John is wondering where it has got to.
By chance the person who finds the report lying in the printer's output tray at the factory is a local union representative. He finds it very interesting reading.
John's boss finds out before John does that the sensitive news has leaked, and John wonders whether he will still have the new role he had expected.
If John had DefPrin installed on his PC the software would have reminded him as soon as he had switched it on, saving him a great deal of embarrassment and heartache.
DefPrin is a really neat little solution to the problem of having too many things to remember to do. It doesn't just provide a passive function that you have to remember to call upon - it remembers for you and reminds you every time.
