    I was looking at some random photography websites when I found one selling prints with this description: "All prints are hand made to order as digital inkjet prints."

    I was wondering which hand is being used and to what purpose? One hand to push the print key and one to pull the hand made print from the printer?

    Sort of like home made food from your local restuarant.

    I don't trust that stuff, it's full of ingredients.

    By the way, I've got a few packs of dehydrated water if anyone's interested...

    I could use some of that dehydrated water because those 1 gallon jugs really take up too much space in the refridgerator.

    I can sell you a tap (faucet) if you like; they take up a lot less 'fridge space...

    Hand made digital must mean they draw the ones and zeros themselves.

    Now probably I am getting beyond gross here, but maybe they mean that while their thumbs are up their asses, they "made" them; their thumbs that is, y'know with sexual connotations. Ewwww! Okay well that would be "made hand" not handmade. I bet they are just trying to give a trusting feel to their technology.

    Just when you think digiheads can't cross anymore lines, they come up with something else. Maybe the guy is holding the ink cartridges in his hands and blowing the ink out with a straw onto the paper? An assistant can slide the paper back and forth for him.

    (forum moderator) Jorge, does this comment top the 'digital platinum print' comment? lol!
