printers suck

Yar, it's one of those days where you are just busy pretty much all the time, but when you look back over the past four or five hours, you realize that you have not accomplished a whole lot. Needless to say, I am placing the blame for that squarely on the printers. The whole broken lot of them.

My real question for the day, though, is:
Why do we use the phase 'do-gooder' for one that is helpful, and 'evil-doer' for one that causes strife? As opposed to 'do-eviler' and 'good-doer'?
It's not like 'gooder' is a real word either.
