I think this concept is right on for me anyway. So to further that
possibility, I am in SW Oregon, and anyone else close by interested say
generally from Portland area down to the bay area, east to Boise / Reno /
Las Vegas as a general parameter (though not rigid). I can be reached at
garycay@mind.net. I am in the 16x20 size, still using OEM and Lysonic E inks
on Somerset. When those are gone, I will most likely move on to Luminous
Silver / Lysonic Fotonic inks.... peace&prosperity for those willing to have
