I have a similar story, but mine was when I was in high school. I asked if
I could use the printer to print an assignment that I had written. The
teachers were impressed. Unfortunately when I used their printer somehow it
messed up their Appletalk network and they could never get the printer to
work again! Or that's what I assumed, maybe they tried turning it off and
on again. This was with my original MessagePad, which makes it all the more
impressive.
