Re: Permanence (was Laser printing)



Thank you for addressing this in a very professional and precise manner. I
am always very impressed when I look at a page or volume from the 14th &
15th century. How glad I am that the issue of permanence was important to
those authors and printers. I can only dream that someone in the 25th
century will be impressed with some of my printing.

Long Live Low Tech!
