Not infrequently I want to print a document (usually a Holiday Request Form) that's stored on helvellyn (my workstation at work). To do this I open it in MS Word on the Citrix Server, which is located in Houston, and print using a magic Citrix printer thingum that spools to my local lpd.

Earlier this afternoon one such printjob got wedged and #chiark seemed rather surprised about the procedure (oh god you're trying to print over the atlantic). In general I tend not to notice the physical location of machines, perhaps because most machines I use remotely run unix?
