I got some paper for my 8032P printer. The paper has 2 lines high horizontal reddish stripes separated by 2 lines high blank areas. It is a 3-fold sheet, so I can print three copies at once. The paper is ideal for this printer, since the stripes are exactly as wide as the printing area (x*10+6 characters; I didn't count the characters of my "1234567890..." test pattern). But now the problem: How can I convince the printer to print lower-case characters? I tried sending ctrl+n to the printer, but it had no effect. A related note: I got a 8-bit ISA card by National Instruments that implements an IEEE-488 bus. I even found Linux drivers for it, but I haven't tried it out yet. Has anyone tried to interface Commodore IEEE-488 peripherals (disk drives and printers) with "real" IEEE-488 networks? Are there any incompatibility issues? I might try to turn my spare PC (48 MB of RAM, 75 MHz Pentium) into some sort of a disk server. Marko Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
