"The output was a long thin strip maybe 3-4" wide that we put through a hot wax machine to be able to do our layouts and pasteups." - I used something like this myself at the college newspaper, but it was a typesetting system.

At my first writing job, writers were to *write* and secretaries typed - that was a big uproar in the STC in those days. It was a big day when the company purchased a (I think) Word Star unit that the secretary actually got into like a cockpit to do the data entry and formatting. The output was a long thin strip maybe 3-4" wide that we put through a hot wax machine to be able to do our layouts and pasteups.

Am I really dating myself?
