A thought about the old teletypes:
I got started in radio back in 1982, just in time to have changed more than my share of AP ribbons (since that duty most often fell to the underlings at a given station). At the same time, I became a believer in the power of pumice.
Also, those boxes which held the fanfold paper were the perfect size to hold 45s when their supply of paper was spent.
AP just isn't as fun on the computer.
