Looks like Spain is opening borders to some countries on 1st July.

But still no word on when I can drive 70 miles south into Almeria to get my f*cking teabags!
Do you know anyone in Almeria who could get you some and meet them at the border, he can throw you the teabags and you throw over the dosh :lol: :thumb:
Nobody who lives anywhere near Albox though.....they're in different parts of the the province.
That's a shame, if you had got some from ebay last week they probably would have arrived by now :thumb:

I feel your pain, one of the biggest difficulties during the pandemic has been getting my hands on any of the small luxuries that we civilized folks take for granted yet the average American supermarket is fundamentally lacking.

I tried an Epson for that reason. The problem I found was that since the print heads are built into the printer they clogged up even when used daily and it didn't last long. With printers that use cartridges that have the print head in the cartridge you get a new print head every time you replace the cartridge. But you do need to use quality cartridges in them.

:stupid:

Just this, had one leak on the floor and had one that used most of the ink (which was Epson and not cheap stuff) to constantly clean the heads, was by far the best quality but mine is for invoices and it was a pain, print heads in cartridges is an easy fix and never had one fail.

I don't do much colour printing myself now, i have an Epson R3000 with a CISS system never had an issue with it and is getting on for 8/9 years old now, although i do a print head clean weekly just to keep on top of maintainence, was thinking of selling it and going for a laser printer instead as no printheads to clog up :thumb:
