But, the fact is one calibrates a monitor to get its operating characteristics into a quantifiable, known state. Subsequent periodic profiling keeps it there as the monitor ages.

Two process! Calibration THEN Profiling. As shown above in bold, green and underlined. But amateurs refuse to read carefully (or if they do, willfully distort).

Back in the old CRT days, in the publishing industry, we profiled our monitors twice a day due to their tendancy for performance to drift.

Both are true -- what you state and "for 99 percent of photographers who use color management, it is done as a single process with a hardware/software calibration package."

No, not correct again. Foolish to ignore the facts multiple people report here* or your own beloved web site on Color (even a broken clock is right twice a day)🤔

But flame warriors refuse to read carefully (or if they do, willfully distort).
