[clug-talk] All of a sudden

My printer doesn't work. It's been working fine since close to eternity.
Now, nothing prints... My Windows machines list 35 jobs in the print queue,
and show jobs from all users on the network. The "Pause printing" checkmark
won't uncheck, and Cancel All Jobs doesn't work either - the bottom of the
screen says "access denied" ...

Print server (venus) is running PCLinuxOS (Mandriva)... The following is a
short exerpt from the log:

The printer name is "SAM" and my brother is "Steven" trying to print stuff.
All settings are wide-open, there's no authentication whatsoever on this
printer.
Why is it all of a sudden not working? :(
