I've got a 5.25" factory-labeled Compugraphic diskette in the
collection here (offhand, I don't recall the model number). And
don't forget the Varityper--another large system of about the same
time. About the size of a chest freezer. Hard-sector 8" diskettes
and software called CompSet, IIRC.
I used to be fascinated by the old Linotype hot-metal machines
myself. ETAOIN SHRDLU.
