Ton S would love it. I wonder what ever happened to him. He even removed his blog.

I started with a Praxis 48 way back in the 80s. Neat typewriter. I always think it is very futuristic.

She contacted me too, and I recommended Piotr among others.

I will be in London this July, so maybe I will get to see the show.

Hi Robert, Juliette's obviously been put onto me too. I can supply part of her needs (and tried to tempt an outing for the Graphika!). I suggested she puts a post in the Facebook group too.
