LF: Tektronix Model 31 Info AVL: Olivetti Programma 101 parts/docs

I just found a tape (printed paper) of my program for printing a random
toss of the dice, something I banged into an Olivetti 101 back in about
1977 or so. It's huge.

It was in the same box as some six rolls of 1" 8-column punched paper
tape, canary yellow, from the ASR-33 I used to use to write programs on the
TSS/8 system in high school, same era as above. I have no idea what the
programs were for. I might not have punched a people-readable header, or I
might have rolled them end-out for some long forgotten reason.

Looking at the printouts that were with them, it doesn't seem to be a huge
loss. I was a really awful programmer in high school.
