  • Non-OEM printer inks fade fast!

    For all you photographers that print out your photos, you may want to investigate light and dark fade on the inks and papers you use. While it is common practice to replace the expensive ink cartridges with refills and low-cost aftermarket cartridges, if you are printing your images for professional or long term use you may want to check out this article (it starts on the right hand side of the page):

    They also have reviews of the printers/inks/papers out there on the market for your review.

          I don't know anything about gaming, nor do I have an interest in it. I do know something about magazine publishing, though.
