Law and Order: Princeton Style

It seems the few computers left on campus where you could continue printing with abandon (and without release) on the University's dime have been brought in line with the University's new printing quotas. The printers in the basement of Robertson --- in rooms 40, 42 and 46 --- have now been connected to printer release stations which will be operational as of tomorrow morning. Users have been warned that the printing quota will apply to those printers as well, though not until some point in the "near future."

If your grandparents live in the area and they receive a phone call from "you" claiming to be in trouble, it may just be a scam. The grandparents of a Rutgers student who live in Princeton Township received a call from their "grandson," who told them he was in trouble and in need of money. The couple were taken for a ride for $3,000. Be forewarned.

Pardon my ignorance, but what is a "printer release station"? What stops someone from attaching a laptop via a USB cable directly to a printer and circumventing the quota? Obviously this is less convenient than sending something over the network, but why would it not work?
