Ditto. I also use the "Spyder" device to profile my monitor -- for me, 
profiling the monitor with a hardware device (these aren't expensive) 
-- did much more than custom printer profiles.

I've become fond of this paper called "Moab Entrada Fine Art Natural 
300" -- it doesn't have optical brighteners so the prints won't change 
color as the optical brighteners die. There is also an Entrada "Bright 
White" or something like that.
