Re: Paper tape anyone?
I wonder how many paper tape readers still exist?
At least five. One standalone, serial interface, three Fridens, and one ASR33. The standalone one is incredibly useful; one of the museum team wrote a utility to write a couple of common formats with it.
Some time ago someone I know wondered how much space 1.4PB 'printed out' on vellum would take. Couldn't help there, but as paper tape it would fill about 11.5 Albert Halls.
