    Um… what’s a mimeograph? (It’s kind of a shame no one uses telegrams anymore; faxes and text messages and emails got rid of them.)

    Mmmm, that great smell of newly printed mimeograph paper. Takes me back to elementary school!

    Mimeograph? I missed those! We had them all the time in school. I used to love the smell of the mimeograph machine in the morning! (afternoons, too!)

    Or you could get a FAX card for your computer, assuming you have a scanner built into your printer. (Why not just e-mail?)

    Most ‘faxing’ has become scan to a pdf and then emailed, but there are still people with out an email address. They remind me of when I was a kid and the people who resisted getting a TV. Now, I find this generation (the one after the ‘X") don’t even use TV’s they get all their visual entertainment through the internet. Times and changes are speeding up.

    Waaaayyy back when, mimeographs were a mixed blessing. The plus side was… as several readers have mentioned… the almost intoxicating scent when they had just been produced. On the minus side…. it meant we were about to take a test.

    Our doctor’s office staff claim they don’t have the capability to send or recieve e-mail. Why wouldn’t a doctor’s office have even rudimentary e-mail, especially in the cases where time is usually of the essence regarding patients?

    When I was sin seminary (late 1950s) the joke was that when Martin Luther threw the ink well at the devil, the devil got mad. It took awhile, but the devil invented the Mimeograph and has been throwing ink at preachers ever since. Mimeograph is an A. B. Dick trade name and should have an initial capital. Copier was the approved generic.
