A depressingly endless series.

Here's an abomination I've never seen before: I'm looking for obituaries on the Catalan composer Joaquim Homs, who died in September 2003, and I find one at HispaVista, a Spanish news site. So, I print it out. And it comes to a total of 194 pages, 193 of which are blank, save for page headers and footers. Almost 200 pages turned to scrap because of some crappy code. Hope they're planting plenty of fresh trees in return.
