IBM Selectric? Hah. You kids. I have my grandmother's 1911 Remington
typewriter. It still works, if I can find a ribbon for it. And when
that gives out, I have 55 fountain pens and a lot of ink. And if that
doesn't work, I have some clay in the back yard and a stylus. So, if
we ever go back to pre-Industrial Revolution days and desperately
need a technical manual for a moldboard plow, I'm all set.
