Buy some old printers

Somebody out there needs five – count them! – five lovely Apple printers (4 Stylewriter inkjets and a twenty year-old Imagewriter dot-matrix). I think you should probably buy these just to make some sort of art installation (are you listening Ivan?). With these printers, an old Mac (or a new Mac and an adapter) and OS X.3 you’ve got yourself a nifty networked fax server (five nifty networked fax servers, in fact). You could write a script to print a grab from your webcam every five minutes or use them to print badges for your speed dating thing. Come on, you’ll think of something.

One thought on “Buy some old printers

  1. Well, I could swap them for all the kit I’ve got sitting around here. For example, I got a grant from the Arts Council a couple of years back to buy as many desktop printers as I could handle. Thus, I have more little colour desktop printers in my life than I could ever shake a stick at. Actually, I’ve just taken two of them down to a show along with two PCs from my last defunct business and one Mac from the business before that.
