HP Ready Message Hack

Want a quick way to change the ready message on a networked HP printer? Here you go


Download this executable:


And run it like this:

HPHack.exe <printer name or IP Address> <"message">

This will replace the printers standard Ready message (usually "READY") with your custom message.

Thanks to LifeHacker for pointing me to this, Hackzine for the details, and Karland / sili at 10pht.com for the code.
