Trying to print in color?

See the link below that Greg created.

Keep in mind you have to do this each time you want to print color.  It's not a one and done thing.

Apple sends all print jobs color and lets the printer sort it out.  Our leased printers and copiers can't "sort it out".  Thus, we get charged color for every job if we don't do it this way.

"....young people of their own volition choose to spend many hours playing complex computer games outside school. Games, it seems, 'have something', they seem to have a way of engaging and interesting young people. The desire to harness this motivational power to encourage young people to want to learn is the main driver behind an interest in computer games for learning."

What benefit can computer games have in developing certain thinking processes, communication skills, and problem solving strategies?
