On the Printer...I am currently using a generic HP Photosmart 8250...I think cost about $80 or $90 dollars:p ...previous to this I have had the higher end Epson Stylus Photo R800 and the Canon S9000 ink jet Printers both of these with the vaunted "micro head jet nozzles"
...but have found that all of the printers with this feature clog up
...and eventually break down
...so though the initial prints with these upper end printers ($300-$400) was good...they were a failure
in the long run! This is totally my take on printers:o and should not be confused with other more intelligent and technically minded opinions!
