      Cool. Good to know they're with one of us!

      >>> if you run this command, you can test the printer: ... 10 print "this is

      That was the very first thing I did! :) The printer works.

      I sold a working one of these to Bill Sudebrink. He has all of the tapes,
      manuals,etc. the only problem with the unit was the tape capstan. I am
      unsure if he has fixed it since the swap meet.

      if you run this command, you can test the printer:

      10 print "this is a test" [enter]
      run [enter]

      by default the print output goes to the printer.
