The cool thing about the Internet and blogging in general is that there are always voices out there that will challenge you. Here, thankfully, is no different. In my post yesterday about the P510 and printing above a certain size, I made an assertion that one would get crappy output above 8 x 10, perhaps; however, that was a faulty assertion, I have found out. After reading comments I thought: Certainly, this could be pilot error; after all, I would…
