Epson Out-of-Warranty Service for 24 and 44 Inch Printers
(Top) Epson has just announced an out-of-warranty One-Time Service Plan for Stylus Pro 7900 and 9900 and SureColor P7000 and P9000 printers. As a member said on the Luminous Landscape forum: "For instance it would put them in the ballpark of what the replacement of an out of warranty Canon print head would run, though with the Canon you do it yourself. 90 days is plenty of time to evaluate the quality of the part and workmanship. I mean for me it might make the difference between choosing an Epson over a Canon for my next 44” and keep people buying Epson ink rather than jumping ship to another brand is smart."

Don't Use Google Chrome with Windows 7
(Top) From an article that just appeared in Forbes: "Now a Google security engineer, Clement Lecigne, has warned that another zero-day vulnerability that is also being exploited, impacting Windows 7 users, was being used together with the Chrome exploit to take over Windows systems." (A link to this article).
According to this article, Windows 7 and Google Chrome combine to allow hackers to use this exploit. Google Chrome has the highest market share for browsers (up to 50 percent), but it seems like dropping it (by switching to FireFox or Opera) if you are running a Windows 7 computer is a good idea (or, follow Google's advice and upgrade to Windows 10).
The New Epson SureColor T3170 Is a Great Printer!

Local photographer David Aschkenas is doing a one night show of his photographs of the Keystone State Wrestling Alliance matches in Millvale, PA, that he has taken over the past 10 years. The KSWA has been entertaining their fans, the "Krazies," since 2000 - and it's a labor of love, not one of wealth and fame.
The show will take place at the studio of Mark Gualtieri, 179 43rd Street, Lawrenceville, PA 15201, on Friday, March 1, from 6 to 9 PM. One hundred photographs will be on display, and will be specially priced for this one night only event. Have fun, meet the wrestlers, become one of the "Krazies," and enjoy the great photography!
(Top) And, it doesn't seem to be on the users of their operating systems and software.
A few days ago, we ran Windows updates on a customer's Windows 7 computer and the updates broke Windows file sharing (The Register article).
We also found an announcement from Microsoft describing how bad Internet Explorer is (Forbes article). According to Forbes, the problem is that Internet Explorer is still the second most popular browser. So, is Microsoft saying that they really don't care about you - get over it, and move on?
And, for die-hard Windows 7 users (like most of the business world, and about 37 percent of PC users per Computerworld), support for Windows 7 is ending in January, 2020. Get over it and move on to wonderful and robust Windows 10.
Oops, that might be a problem, too - Techradar points out problems with Windows 10 updates.
