It’s been longer for me!  ;-)

But I *did* use it *a lot* when I was there.

Missed using it until one of my co-workers at IBM started “playing” with an IBM 4250
electro-erosion printer (I believe it was 600dpi H and 600dpi V).  It used aluminized
mylar (rolls again) — hence the electro erosion.  He wrote a bunch of SW for it and
ran it off of his PC-AT (at the time) and could produce “camera ready” results.  You
could also do limited print runs (100-500 copies) directly from resultant mylar.  Very
cool device…not really fast though.
