"DOD's paperless contracting goals are part of DOD's overall Defense Reform
Initiative unveiled last year by Vice President Al Gore and Secretary of
Defense William Cohen. The department's re-engineering goals include the
creation of a "paperless society by the year 2001," Cohen said, and the
movement of all paper-based documentation and transactions to electronic
media."

I guess a paperless society will take some more time... ;)

PS: I noticed Samsung has started offering its own toner-saving software
(aka Print optimization) in their web site for its laser printer. It
reduces ink usage by offering a preview of the printout (before it's sent
to the windows print spooler) and then lets you adjust grayscales and
basically sets "brightness" higher (blacks become grays, grays become
lighter grays, etc) saving a lot of toner in the process. Perhaps this
could be integrated as a "toner saver" feature in the print preview dialog,
so it benefits everyone not only those with Samsung printers or those who
have installed third party ink saving software?
