I am fondly remembering my dad's letter quality printer from ages ago.
It was a daisy wheel I think. Printed beautifully... loved the
tacktacktatack and then the nice little whirr as the carriage returned.
I think it actually printed in both directions alternatingly but you
got occasional non-printing returns... sounded like a screen door
hydraulic as it travelled along the bar. And of course my original
home PC's printer a Citizen 120D. Nice little dot matrix printer. I
still had it up until a few years ago... in fact my dad might have it
