My first printer was a Mannesman Tally (sp?) that was very programmable and 
had square print heads! ;^)

I hung it off my DEC Professional 350, strung together some keyboard macros 
to enable/exploit some of the features in the printer under Pro/EDT...


Still have them all, but don't think I can get a ribbon for the Mannesman 
Tally printer any more...

Square print heads - genius! Can't believe that didn't catch on...
