With the (few) prints I've done with Archiva, I've seen an effect that I've never seen before, in 2+ years of working with Epson inks. I'm refering to what seems to be a variation in ink-delivery, on one or more primary colors, along the length of one print. This is totally unacceptable. If the ink "drops out" in the middle of a print, the whole print is ruined. That could mean a couple of bucks worth of wasted ink and paper, not to mention wasted time, wear-and-tear on the printer, and frustration (leading to further wastage.) And of course, every such "wasted" print brings you that much closer to refill-time for that cartridge. "Profiling" under such circumstances is hopeless. rafe b. - Please turn off HTML mail features.
