I know it sounds really stupid, but I have an excuse. Last April I bought a 3880 and unpacked it on a table, but did not open/setup the ink. Good thing. A few days later I had to travel to mom's to help her with health issues. That Sep we were evacuated early am in a monster of a flood by boat. Got out with clothes, mom, cat, but lost D700 & 16-35mm Nikon F4. Lucky insurance covered that and car, but nothing of mom's. She lost house and everything in it. Last several months busy taking care of mom, her finances & home, building a new house, etc. Looks like next month we'll move in and I'll finally be able to use the 3880.

Now, since I did not unpack the ink will I be able to shake it and use it? If so how long will the ink last a 20-40 big print per month rate? Is there anything I should do that would allow me to use the original ink (better)?

Last thing, I'm only moving a few blocks away. Do I really have to rebox and tape everything back up or if I'm careful moving/driving can I just take it as is mostly?

Really appreciate any help by next weekend when I'll probably move.

Thanks
Richard
