Update to viewing and printing postscript files

A Windows 8.1 update to 'The Mysteries of Postscript'

Installing GSView and Ghostscript seems to work fine on Windows 8.1.  I haven't tested out the Inkscape connection because I never end up using it, as it seemed pretty inconsistent.  After installing Ghostscript and GSView with no problems, I set up the .eps printer as described in this tutorial.  However, at least with the driver I chose (first HP one in the list which was HP Color LaserJet 2500 PS Class Driver), there were NOT any PostScript Options under Document Options in the configuration step.  So I tried to go ahead and print my .eps file, and at least with the pdf I used, it worked fine.  I'm not sure if that has to do with Windows 8.1, or if I just happened to select a handy driver.
