Ruxcon printer hacking

Lulztech is modifying code for a financial institution to secure its online services in preparation for the proposed data breach laws. During your 15 minutes of actual work today you have to submit your TPS report, but the printer has jammed. You need to get it out and submitted in the next 60 seconds or you'll be working over the weekend. The first to submit their TPS report will win the round. The loser will be working the weekend.
