If a printer supports PS it supports PS,  you don't need to emulate anything.  Is the issue more getting the OS to recognise the printer so you can print to it ?   Would have thought that printers all conform to the same standards for the standard features ?

What the heck is going on in that polaroid tacked to the bulletin board in the picture above!!


How the hell did you spot something like that. Does look odd.

On Topic, more software = good.

The picture in a dorm looks like it's from 1989, but how is there a smart phone on the desk??

Look at that shelf in top left of photo - yes, full of cd's. Highly unlikely in 1989.

That polaroid was actually the first thing I noticed though....:)

Hmm.. my Amigas are networked and I've just printed to network printers with lpr.device or netprinter.device... at least then I don't need to worry about OS recognising :) So far my printers have worked just fine with HP laserjet drivers (they haven't been HP, but printers seem generally to work with it) or by printing postscript directly to them. If either of them wouldn't have worked, at least other printer had such printer server that I just could upload text files with ftp to it and it'd had printed them on its own :)

Anyway, I don't think there has been much problems with Amiga printing ever or now, if you just have a little more expensive printer than just the cheapest Windows only bulk printer...

Yes, on closer inspection, I suppose that smartphone could actually be a black cassette tape box. Then there's the VHS tapes, the VCR and the old TV. Plus, he's wearing a wrist watch, and what looks like a wind up as it has a tall glass dial. Strange photo indeed!

Both you guys are drunk. Not a smartphone, more likely a remote control for the TV and are you kidding about the CD's in 1989? I had dozens of them by that time and I was still a teenager! CD format was released in what, 1982. By the mid 80's, had my own machine. Late 80's, worked at a CD only store, who went with the LIFT display system. European design, which allowed you flip through the cd's one by one, like LP's. Very cool stuff!   :love:

Thought it might be a remote, but thinking since it's next to makeup brushes, probably a woman's compact or cassette tape? Too small to be a VHS or Beta tape.

Scratch that, not makeup brushes, but a plastic tipped dart missing its flight. I'm betting that's a dart case and you better you better you bet that'd be something you'd see in a dorm back then!    :lol:

Can anyone photo-enhance this on their Amiga?

@Dammy

It looks nice, I bet a lot of hard work went into that.
