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

By chance, had you used NewtKey ?

My manager needed a printed copy of the hours I had worked over the past
several weeks. Anticipating this request, I'd created a Works spreadsheet
approximately 3 weeks prior. I asked where the plug is located and the
printer's network name. Launched Works, printed it on the Apple
LaserWriter, and handed to him within a few seconds. He was completely
surprised and asked how I did it. I showed him my spreadsheet on the MP2K.
He then asked if I could remove the labels and print it again. Within a few
seconds I presented it without labels. Impressed, he wandered back to his
office. I was paid in full the following week. (-:
