Good to know

Here's a delightful little error message I get from time to time when I try to print article layouts here at work. It's either condescending or dense, I can't tell which.

This document may contain binary EPS files, which can cause the print job to fail. If the printer produces output, then the binary data did not interfere with printing.

I'm guessing you guys are using InDesign. What it means: Macintosh EPS files are most often binary files, and so they contain some characters which mess up Windows-only PostScript printers. Control-D in particular will reset that kind of a printer.
