You left yourself wide open with that one. I'm 74. But gravity has pulled
the 17" neck I used to have, down to someplace hidden behind my navel. To
call me a bit 'portly' would be kind.
As for the troll? Nope.
I'll go you one better, though, I can prove it. See
The pix is now 5 years old, but that's me & the better half, and there is more
below the pix.
While using the gutenprint plugin for gimp, I have made color prints from
weddings etc, on an elderly epson C82 4 color printer, on good mat paper that
I have sold, several times. Epsons inks are pricey but pretty accurate.

Heh, yeah, I have one of those too, dual boots xp and linux. Mainly used when
I'm on the road, putting out technical fires at some tv station. Broadcast
engineering has been my bread supplier for about 47 years now. The lappy is
probably 14 months cold ATM. And that is the only winders machine on the
premises, 1 out of 6, the other 5 are running. But one of those 5 is running
nitros9, so I'll see how much you know about 'legacy' computers. :)
