Someone else mentioned having trouble getting the Baren Digest
through Comcast's new security. I'm having the same problem and
found this issue in the screened mail folder. Have you had any luck
getting the problem solved and, if so, how?

Mark - I don't know if I ever answered that I print reduction and
Western technique on damp paper and it is no problem keeping the
paper moist. Just put it in a plastic bag, with newsprint (also
damp) between the prints. Take them out of the bag as needed and
return them to the bag when printed. If you will be several days
then refrigerate the whole shebang between printings. If it goes on
for weeks you may need to move up to the freezer between printings.
It all works! By keeping the prints in the bag the moisture will
even out throughout the stack and registration will remain true.
