  • Wow!!  What wonderful luck!  I love the framing through the fence slats; great for the weasel to pose for you. I have never, ever missed a shot or missed focus when the perfect shot was there to ...
  • Thanks for writing Ian.  The only way I could write to a disk was making the DVD a data disk in CDBurnerXP (newest update).  I then tried watching the video in my usual browser (BreezeBrowser) and ...
  • Created discussion thread Needing a new DVD Burner
    I need an inexpensive, not free (most are full of cr*p) DVD burner that will reliably burn MP4 video files to a DVD. I had a couple, such as CDBurnerXP, but they wouldn't play the DVD MP4 files on ...

  • I put Sibley's on my cell phone, which I take everywhere I go.  It has helped me ID lots of birds.  The cell phone version includes some bird calls and sounds, which is helpful.  I take it ...
  • Just had a chance to review your shots of the Grebes.  Terrific series; great work.  We have lots of grebes in Washington State but like many others, I have yet to see babies hitching a ride.  ...
  • Aghhh!  Wait, we have been led astray lots of times!  Oh, it was so easy in the film days; digital photography keeps my mind busy trying to find out what the heck is going on...which is good at my ...
  • Now, we are getting somewhere, Vernon.  I will look at the yellow in my nozzle checks (both auto and manual) to see if I can detect anything.  Any ideas how to look a bit deeper into the weak cyan ...
  • Andrew and Howard, and others who responded.  I used the zip file converted to .jpg to see what was really happening with my colors.  My prints showed cyan was a nice printed purple!!  Clearly, ...
  • Andrew:  I was hoping you would chime in, thanks.  I used perceptual for many years and was happy.  It was only when the colors started going haywire that I tried other rendering.  I will download ...
  • Howard:  just ran the auto advanced print block test; the colors look perfect to me.  All grays, reds, yellow, and blues were spot on with no gaps or other observable errors.  I wonder where to go ...
  • Thanks, Bob.  I am wondering the same thing; somewhere from the cartridge to the print head something maybe partially blocking the flow. I hate to use gallons of ink to flush the lines though. Cheers,
  • Thanks Howard for your fast response.  I'll try the advanced test to see if I see anything.   I agree, I've never had inks go bad, including Cone's inks.  Probably something small I am missing or ...
  • Howard:  I mean, where do I find the advanced checkerboard file? Thanks, Gary
  • Sorry, I was beat tired when I wrote the post and wasn't thinking.  I shook all carts including the cyan and light cyan; but not vigoriously.  The main problem is that I don't print as much as I ...
  • Hi, Howard.  Thanks for responding.  Right now I am just doing the minimal wiggly lines nozzle check.  I couldn't find my old color comparison files that I got from Tim Grey and others.  I forgot ...
  • Created discussion thread Blue not printing on 3880
    I have been using the 3880 for years now and currently am using RR house satin paper and a few others.  I have a calibrated monitor and use appropriate ICC profiles for the paper types I might be ...
  • Replied in Barred owlets
    Terrific set of barred owlet pictures.  I love these birds.  We live next to a riparian woodland and hear the barred owls at night, along with screech owls, coyotes, etc.  I sometimes see them on ...
  • Been using RR paper for years.  I print a lot of cards and my favorite paper is their Linen, which is terrific for flowers, animals, old buildings, art shots, and is wonderful for when I convert a ...
  • hey, Geoffery, are you trying to get everyone to give up their homes and move to the south pacific?  Your shots and narratives make me want to pull up stakes and move.  Darn beautiful place. Cheers, ...
