I had totally forgotten the Versatec. I used to have to service one used for printing out radiotherapy treatment plans.It was attached to a Data General Eclipse Computer. When working the quality was very good but ,as said, cleaning the pump and piping was not a job I relished.
I have still got a box of paper that they used around somewhere. It had a 'chalky' finish to it

That chalky paper reminds me of those "wet" copiers and print room police making sure that you did all you could to avoid black borders due to it wasting toner.

Waitrose free coffee...once it was quite free, then you had to queue up for a cup, then you had to agree to buy something, now you have to buy something FIRST, before getting a cup. It is clearly too good a deal because the coffee is delicious!
