They didn't do the printer their way'. It's a Brother EP-41-45 thermal
typewriter printer just stuck into the case. Does anyone know what speed
the modems in those things were? Mine's loaded with the 1MB RAM option, and
modem, but have no idea if it's actually useful or not. One other question:
How do I access the RAM above 640k? Do I need a special driver, or does it
somehow have 1MB base RAM (Is that even possible??)
