Well pardon me. I am sorry that you seem to seek to take such an adversarial position. I am perfectly willing to leave it at you knowing all there is to know and I knowing all the rest. :-) To the best of my knowledge, neither you nor anyone else has provided any data or evidence that step motors cannot effieciently or cost-effecively be made to move paper in a precise incremental way; so I will stand by my statement that until further information is provided, we do not know one way or the other if it is possible (with we being the general royal "we" from which you may be excused as a member of that group). As best, it appears that all we can possibly say is that such an efficient and cost effective step motor system has not yet been developed,has not yet been implemented, or does not currently exist. This says nothing about the possibility - current or future. While there may be literature based on theorwetical or empirical study and research that finds it to be impossible to further develop or implement step motor systems beyond the current operational limitations, I am unaware of it nor has anyone referred to such documentation in any of the discussions of step motors that I have seen. > -----Original Message----- > From: email@example.com > [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org]On Behalf Of SKID Photography > Sent: Wednesday, June 05, 2002 12:47 AM > To: email@example.com > Subject: Re: Lexmark Z65 4800 DPI printer > > > Laurie, > Speak for yourself only, please.
