    If it's an HP made from Canon parts, it's likely to outlive us all. I have a couple newer ones to clean and send off, too, but I don't need an extra 5ppm at the expense of plastic that eats itself every few years- my cars do that enough.

    I've got an IBM infoprint 1512 12 years old only, though. Nothing needed changed yet, is still a champ.
    I still have an IBM P70: . Wrote my dissertation on it, that thing took multiple days to compile a kernel if you had the luck to have no power failure in that time...

    Your printer has the same amount of RAM as the 4100n. Interesting. At 30PPM and 32MB, that has to be a beast on the host for processing and spooling. I miss Plasma goodness. Windows 3, not so much.

    The slowest thing I've compiled a kernel on had to be a VAXstation 3100. I think it took -a week- Actually, looks like 13 days for a NetBSD 1.2 kernel. It took something like 9 hours to generate a basic SSH1 1024 bit RSA key.

    Sounds like a plan. You won't get to enjoy anywhere as much sugar with an actual beer, though.

    By KVM I mean Kernel Volume Manager. It's going to tell everything what to do and will have an awesome XSLT interface which enables you to tell it how many timeslices to share with the kernel and which of it's multiple possible init functions might be called. Possibly.
