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...
