I can't say how nice it is to be able to use Argyll for profiling my 4x6
papers instead of ColorElite!   The profiles are soooo much better.

How well are your devices holding up?    Have you recalibrated it or
replaced the battery?   I have two, one of them doesn't have a corresponding
calibration patch, and is way off from the other.   My batteries are very
weak.   My primary DTP20 seems to still be calibrated well and yielding good
profiles for prints.  But I'm wondering how long I have to go without
sending them if for calibration (or if it's even possible now).

The Pulse works so much nicer than the munki for scanning patches.
