It all became too much of a pain...  I could, about 80% of the time, get
labels to go through one of my old inkjets, before it died.  But, it
didn't always print in the same place (vertical-wise).  And, thanks to
programming idiots who play silly games with DPI, it was impossible to
print where I wanted.

i.e. On my much older computer and printer, if I said a box started 12
cm down, and 5 cm across, was 3 cm high and 5 cm wide, then it printed
exactly as I specified.

On the newer gear, where it threw away standards, and turned them into
arbitrary unspecified figures, I had to waste paper doing test prints
and making tiny unpredictable adjustments, to get things to print right.

I really hate pinheads who stuff things up until it *seems* to work for
them, without understanding what they're doing.  It stuffs things up for
everyone *else* in an unmanageable way.
