It's an LA12 -- I would offer configuration docs, but I see he
has them already. Cool find!

When I last had one of these (1998), I was still able to order
ribbons from Dig^H^H^H Comp^H^H^H^H HP. You may still be able to.
At the time I called 1-800-DIGITAL, which mysteriously still worked.
I doubt it would work today, but it's worth a try. (Maybe you'll get
a bored housewife in Montana and you'll have a lovely conversation)
