I frequently think about having a "system log" printer next to my main server (a soon-to-be-placed-in-service E420r), but finding a suitable impact printer and low-cost ribbon source for said printer have held up those plans for awhile. I'd like to log all logins on actual paper (throwback to my mainframe operations days)...

A Decwriter II or III, ASR or KS would do nicely - anyone in the middle-atlantic region (VA/WV/PA/DE/NJ/NY/CT/MA) have one knocking about they'd let go???
