I had Print Shop for PC. I made so many banners that I got a stern talking-to from dad about the cost of printer ribbons. Now that tractor-fed printers are completely gone from the home market, though, we'll never see those again.
the print shop robot returns!

i turned on the windows web desktop and set http://www.kisrael.com/journal.aux/2004.07.22.funtile1.html as my desktop background... it's fantastic!

Alternatively you could download the image itself, and then right click and set it as a tiling background image (doesn't work if you just right click and say "Use as Background")
Admittedly, it's pretty frickin' busy for a backdrop.
One cool thing is, if you unfocus your eyes it has a certain 3D quality...

I got Print Shop working on an Atari emulator once, with a parallel port printer that could emulate one of the old common brands. And it didn't always work, because of the automatic ATASCII conversion done by the emulator.
I wonder if they still make tractor feed paper. They have to, right? And ribbons?

Yeah, I think there's a small market for dot matrix, especially some stores w/ receipts...I'm not sure what the benefit is, because now the printers are fairly expensive relatively speaking.

They do make the paper and ribbons, as far as I can tell-- we still have a handful of them where I work because our main database program for accounting is from 1988 or so, and still thinks it's talking to dumb terminals.
One of the benefits of having line printers like this is we can produce a paper backup of transactions-- a very lengthy noisy one, but one that will survive if a hard drive dies. Not that we do this-- too much printer maintenance is called for in that case.
We also have a tracter-fed forms printer, no longer in use and possibly broken, but it's adjustable and wide enough for 160-column paper.

Oh, and as far as I know, not having checked the prices, tractor-fed paper and ink ribbons are still incredibly cheap, especially compared to our equipment-lessor who charges by the page for all our giant HP MFPs and other laserjets.

Couldn't laser printers fake being a dumb terminal?

if it is a low end laser printer it pablroby would not print good quality pictures. check the print dpi of the printer before buying it if its 9600x 2400 it would give some really good quality pictures. it might be a bit hard to find a Laser printer with that print dpi. although there will be many inkjet printers with that feature.

I didn't have a lot of options, relaly. If I were to obey God in finding a real, intentional community, then it had to be soon. I could have shopped around and tried to develop some friendships in a few different places first, but it takes a lot of time for me to get to know people. I checked around for some likely places in Colorado, but they were mostly secular, left-wing experiments. I also looked around for a Messianic community, but no luck there at all. With this community in Texas, I was already a kind of auxiliary member, participating in their online discussions and making occasional visits in person. I had been developing a relationship with a woman there and relaly wanted to see where that might go. In the end, the decision was almost already made before the question was even asked.

(Electronics) I purchase all my ink cargeidtrs at Amazon. With Prime shipping, the ink arrives quickly. Most importantly, the total price is consistently the lowest available, either online or at retail stores.
