We have this expression... 'Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.'

I should think Hell has relatively little fury, and a lot of misery.

Getting "I can't print!" with no further details from my 67-year-old dad (who at one point in his career was a mainframe programmer.)

Gah, even my Hell> posts are going downhill. Gotta stop that up in 2017...

Heh... that's hellishly amusing.

But then, I've often wondered at the mainframe and kernel programmers who seemed completely confused at some of the basics of operating system maintenance.

What he did was write Fortran(I think) CAD analysis programs which happened to run on PRIMEOS, so I guess "mainframe" is not quite accurate. Still...

I sent a list of bullet points to check, and got back "I can print again!" with no further explanation as to what might have been wrong.

I swear, he's just looking for something to talk about.

Oh, there's an idea! Talk to him about hell. Not with him, but to him.
Explain hell to him, and all of its intricacies. Leave no detail unexplored on the subject.

The weather, or the activities of the local sportsball team, would be better conversation than "I can't print"

I figured you'd weigh in with something along those lines sooner or later.

Speaking of resistance, I think I've finally memorized the resistor color code. Black, brown, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, grey, white?
Is that it? (I typed it from memory, no googling)
