WriteMoving Ribbon -- Mark H. Anbinder writes:

One nifty feature of the new GCC printer is its "ribbon saving" feature. GCC's dealer material describes it like this:

"In order to print more quickly, the WriteMove II's ribbon cartridge continues to spool even as it passes over white spaces in your document. GCC has engineered a means by which you can choose to spool ribbon over white spaces, and therefore maximize the speed of the printer, or choose to stop ribbon spooling and conserve the ribbon. If speed is important, choose High Speed Printing. If it is less important, you can conserve ribbon by adjusting the speed downwards.

"Note that you should always use High Speed Printing when using the Multi Strike Ribbon."

I applaud GCC for leaving the choice of whether to optimize printing time or consumables usage in the user's hands. They have revealed a failing of most devices that use ribbons, and have taken it upon themselves to resolve the problem.
