    The dinosaur you don’t know is scarier than the dinosaur that you do know.

    does anyone remember the smell of the memeograph, that purple looking ink that was the test papers of the past.

    Aaaah, the smell of mimeo was almost as good as the smell of leaded gas.

    You’re thinking of ditto, or spirit duplicator.

    I’m not sure if your not pulling our legs. Perhaps you are too young to remember the joys of typing on mimeograph paper, separating it, putting on the mimeograph machine, cranking off copies manually, and running around the rest of the day with purple ink stained fingers.

    The mimeograph was invented by Thomas A. Edison, and is a copyrighted trademark of the A. B. Dick Company which is now Presstek. It is a stencil duplicator using stencils prepared on a typewriter without a ribbon. A more modern method of duplication is the Risograph, which electronically images a stencil by scanning a flat copy, or digitally from a file on a PC.

    Color Laser printers have almost made both machines obsolete.

    Purple dye stained fingers were the product of the Hectograph or spirit duplicator, something entirely different than mimeo.

    Thanks for the education, May. That Edison had his hand in quite a few things, that were usually improved and perfected over time, but started with him.

    The mention of mimeo ink/copies brings back fond memories – and that delicious scent… I could type better on a typewriter before computers, too. Maybe it had something to do with the need to type accurately, because it was not easy to correct a mistake.
