In 1981 our first printer was a 'dot matrix' printer with sprocket feed.  You
had to tear off the edge of the paper with the sprocket holes and you couldn't
even print envelopes!!!  We've come a long way!

Agree on all points.

(Of course, when I got my first inkjet in 1989, there was only the
DeskJet and it had the 180-degree turn. But it also fed the envelopes
top-edge-first, and that worked pretty well.)
