Our company has huge printers as well — they do everything but make
coffee. Apparently that's an optional extra. ;-) We often print and bind
our own manuals for our franchisees — if we have a stock shortage or in
a pinch.

I already have the latest doc source checked out — I just haven't
bothered installing LaTeX yet. Internally, our company moved over to
OpenDocument (ODT) format instead of TeX, so lately I don't have a need
for LaTeX myself. But with apt-get it's no trouble really.

I was actually refering to comb binding or plastic spiral binding — I
just didn't know the correct name at the time I sent that message. But I
see what you mean about Ring Binding on a desk. Umm… Maybe for the
smaller books, I'll use 'perfect binding' (glue) with a paperback cover
for the smaller books and for the larger document like RTL, use ring
binding. Then the huge size shouldn't be such an issue either.
