Ah yes, the it's a copier. My school has been transitioning some labs to copiers/printers. Now you don't need to go to the library or other location to make a copy, just feed it money or swipe your card and presto a COPY.
Now it is fun to see the multiple copies of stuff sitting on top of the machine from people who printed, looked for printer, printed again, repeat. (we have to pay for copies, not prints) They had to put up sings on the walls that say the copier is the printer. Yet over a year later some students still haven't figured it out.
