Epson changes their inks as often as most change underwear ;-), and it
is a real problem. Nearly every new model is a new ink formulation. I
appreciate they are working toward some sort of perfection, but it makes
it nearly impossible for 3rd party companies to make papers that work
with more or all Epson printers.

Admittedly, haven't visited the sight recently. I usually link through
one of the graphics mags or tss (The stock source), and they may have
somewhat different urls they use. Then again, maybe Wilhelm is wanting
to be paid for his research, so maybe he is no longer providing updates
free to the public???
