What's Greenbar? ;^)

Seriously, it wouldn't surprise me if there are a fair number of people here that don't know what you're talking about. Me, I've worked on Mainframes, so am very familiar with what you're talking about.

BTW, did anyone ever make 8 1/2x11" tracker-fed greenbar? I'd love to get ahold of a box or two for the LA75 on my PDP-11.
