Our reliable old standby is an HP Laserjet IIP Plus, been through 5 cartridges and still works perfect.  I wrote a special database program to keep our ranch records, based on the old dos QA4 database, but it only recognizes a parallel port.

The new database programs won't do crosstab and category reports, only individual forms and QSL queries.  Before I wrote the program, we had to maintain journals and expense records, a real pain.  Anyway, I needed a backup in case this old printer gives up.

I just hooked up the C88 and my program accepted it just fine. I printed a picture on regular paper, and the color is superb.  I've heard they eat ink like crazy, but no worries.  My digital cameras gobble batteries, but I don't waste film either.

I also got Epson's new NX400 all-in-one, no computer needed. It has a slot for all the digital cards with a viewer, no more trips to the photo store.  I have hundreds of 35mm slides from overseas, at last I can scan them into prints.
