But how many of you ever have (or better yet - still) produce pictures using
teletype machines?  It's no fair unless you edit the pictures on paper tape?
I still produce a teletype calendar almost every year.  Created and edited
on a model 28 ASR and a model 28 KSR - that's about 400 pounds between the
two machines.

OK, I will admit that I have 3 PCs at the house running Windows 2000, so I
do admit that there is more recent life than teletype machines!
