  1. Ooh, nice red Typestar! I can see from the close-up of the display that you are in fact missing the third “justifying” auto-return mode option. weird…
    Anyway, I mostly like using the roll so I don’t have to think about how much paper I have left ๐Ÿ˜€

      Luckily, I have long considered the machine uprising to be inevitable, so one of my criteria for bringing any kind of digital electronics into my home is, “Could I take this thing in a fight?” I’m pretty sure this little 6lb typer wouldn’t pose much of a threat if things started to go all Maximum Overdrive (1986). Although come to think of it there are two of them in here now… better cap their numbers before I get a Runaway (1984) type situation up in here.
