@g-m-f Fortunately not. We switched to tape cartriges a few years ago.
We had a fax modem thing 20 years ago, we could fax any shit from any app on any mac and receive any fax in email. Fucking hell the backwards bastards. Did i say bastards, i forgot the adjective. Useless bastards.
flag020575yMy school uses dotatrix printers till now (had to visit coz my sister still studies there)
My college uses dot matrix.
My bank uses dot-matrix
They are everywhere.
@g-m-f And, before you ask: After a little incident involving a vacuum cleaner and our customer database 7 years ago, we switched from magnetic-core memory to cutting edge SIPP.
Hey, for some things, dot matrix printers are great. Especially when the guy that wrote the driver is down the hall. 😉
@OfficerHalf We're sitting next to the mailroom. In an open-plan office.
We use the official drivers, so the guy who wrote them, must be sitting on the other side of the ocean.
Side effect of those printers: the guys that work in that department are deaf like a stone because of the noise. That's why they're talking REALLY loud.
