   Well, Femke, depending on the speed of your CPU, hard drive, and graphics
processor as well as the amount of RAM installed, that is not a long time to
produce 500 pages of graphics, each different. The RIPping and other
processing is quite resource intensive. That's just under 21 pages per hour,
or 2.9 pages per minute. What's the complaint?
