There is only one HP inkset available for the 890/1120 printers to my
knowledge; and it doesn't have particularly good permanence.  What
they're putting in the new printers, I have no idea.  It'd be just my
luck that they start manufacturing permanent OEM inks just as I leave
them behind!

7 years doesn't satisfy me;  I think of 30 as the minimum to take
seriously.  This is probably silly of me; but I feel that way anyway.
