No. We are not kidding PrintWhatYouLike is a word. Look it up. We learnt it just today. We like English spellings too, it adds colour to our newsletter, don’t you think? Besides, if England invented English, who are we Americans to muck it up? Learnt, dreamt, burnt, smelt…wait, “smelt” is a fish and the past tense of smell. Is there a connection here? Who cares. We’re off topic. This is 2010 and we’re no better than we were in 2009. Just older.

Anyway – PrintWhatYouLike was designed by two Web designers in Iowa – home of the Children of the Corn. It was designed, they say, to save paper, which saves trees, which saves soil, which saves worms and other critters, which enrich the soil, which makes it possible to grow corn in the state of Iowa.

If you’re not following this, don’t worry. We’re not either. But it certainly is circumlocutious

Here…we’ll bring in the site’s creators – the Iowans, to explain. they’re are not big on euphemism or pomp.

“Save Money. Save the Environment. Tired of printing web pages only to find your printout is full of ads, empty space and other junk you don’t want? PrintWhatYouLike is a free online editor that lets you format any web page for printing in seconds!… was created by Jonathan Koomjian and Cassie Schmitz, two web developers in Des Moines, Iowa who were frustrated that there was no way to print web pages without wasting reams of paper….”

You have the idea now, right? Look at the cool, environmentally friendly printer. See the corn husk? Save trees, make more corn, and print out only what you like from a Web page. Imagine…all our tips online…without those unsightly ads? Priceless!
