EvilHomer Wow, my parents had one of these way back in the long long ago; I remember it being noisy as hell, but I never knew they could do this. I particularly love the overtones; absofuckinglutley brutal!
Somebody teach me how to do this!
infinite zest I think I remember doing this in middle school computer class, but it was with like Old McDonald.. maybe something else. This is incredible.
ashtar. Ok, now someone make a machine that can read what it printed on the paper like a player piano.
That guy I can read it. It's a frickin' rad montage.
Nominal If you look closely, you'll notice that the lines improve a little each time, until the printer is fully trained and ready to avenge his brother's death.
RedRust Loved to make those large "Happy Birthday" banners with these printers.
Old_Zircon That's weird, I'm sure rated and commented on this last night and now it's gone.
gravelstudios I still have my first dot matrix printer, and it will still work with my Windows XP machine. Every so often I drag it out and play with it. I can even still get ribbons for it at Office Max.
