Did anyone else address this issue? If so I missed the answer in a
day spent trying to introduce a new male cat into the household with
two other cats. Lots of spitting, hissing and pissing going down here

But, there are basically two types of ink-jet printers out there.
Those that print with pigmented inks, and those that print with dye
inks. The ones that print with pigmented inks (Epsons primarily, such
as the 2000P, 2200, C80, C84, etc.) are almost certainly more
archival (God, can I use that word here?) than the old type C prints.

Darn, so far in the future? Both Judy and I will both probably be too
old (or demented) by them to really appreciate and revel in her fame!!
