If it's possible, could I take a IBM dot-matrix (or any other dot-matrix)?
By the way, I've tried all the computer retailers in my area, and they

stuff that's still there:

A ton of printers, generally IBM dot-matrix

A few cartons of floppies, with the original disks to DOS 3.3, and a bunch
    programs I have never heard of.
About 15 IBM network cards. I can't tell what they are, but they are brown
full- length eight bit things with round connectors on the back.
An IBM System/74, with three terminals.

difficulty. I could personally use the first 4 items. The System/74 is
the size of a closet, and I doubt I would find much use for it (If only I
I know nothing about it, and I would appreciate if you people would tell me
what the heck a System/74 is. It has a big floppy drive (14" or 8") built
to the front panel, mounted on its side.....
