'b-'. you did not answer which model and usage of paper. :)
asr33, paper scroll :-)
ASR33s also had the paper tape punch and reader. KSR33s did not. I had both hooked up to my Altair 8800 back in '77 via 110 baud, 20mA current
loop serial interfaces.

Ah, memories!

ASR33 on  a Altair, that far back, You must be at least 100,
Smart*ss!  Nah, I was in college (sophmore).

I started out on a RCA 1802 8 bit and I still have it. I modified it to work on S100 bus so I could get more memory , 64k , man you were top dog with that kind of memory.
Only had 56K (seven 8KB RAM cards) and a nice 8K EPROM board (had 1702A
PROMS on it) holding a monitor program.

I don't think anything has had a fast pace change like the Computer.
Then you had to really get into the nuts and bolts of a computer to get one working.
I also still have a dual 8" floppy drive that was big back then.
I can remember when the 3 1/2, 1.4mb floppy first came boy did that make a big difference.

Dear me, all you youngsters prattling on about these new-fangled
"microprocessors". The first system I managed was a PDP-11/45.

Got ya beat.  First managed a Univac (can't recall the model), moved to
an S/360, Burroughs Medium System 12, Xerox Sigma 7, DG Nova 2/10, DEC
PDP-8, PDP-11/45 and VAX 11/785, THEN got the Altairs and IMSAIs (and
Amigas and clones and lions and tigers and bears, oh my!).

And now, back to the real topic.  (What was it again? I forget...)
