Somehow Henry has elevated himself into the > position of INKJET GOD, and frankly, I don't believe it. I really don't think it's productive to make this into a personal disagreement, *especially* with somebody who isn't here to defend himself. I have considerable belief in Mr. Wilhelm's good faith. What he's doing is *extremely* difficult (trying to find a *valid* accelerated aging test), and it's quite possible that his test procedures have produced badly incorrect estimates of ink/paper combination lifespans. I have known that this was a possibility all along; accelerated tests are at best approximations. I see no need to accuse him of bad faith just because you disagree with a particular set of test results (without any controlled tests to base your disagreement on, incidentally). -- David Dyer-Bennet / Join the 20th century before it's too late! / firstname.lastname@example.org http://dd-b.lighthunters.net/ (photos) Minicon: http://www.mnstf.org/minicon http://www.dd-b.net/dd-b (sf) http://ouroboros.demesne.com/ Ouroboros Bookworms - Turn off HTML mail features.
