    Listening to one of my university's trustees lament the loss of high school newspapers. He suggested high schools should mimeograph a few sheets of paper to get the news out. Amazing that trustees are focused on this instead of real issues facing the university.

    I really miss huffing mimeographed quizzes.

    But it has to be the really old style blue mimeograph.

    (Or were all those old tests really in a sarcasm font?)

    Even more amazing is that the trustee apparently isn't aware of the invention of the internet.

    If you look closely, so many schools have no money budgeted for carbon copy sheets.

    Worse, one of those damned hippie groups got them to stop using inter-office smoke signals because of the carbon emissions.

    Hell - just be glad they still have fax machines for letter of intent day.

    When I attended the fine academic institution represented by my avatar, I couldn't believe they still used mimeograph machines. This was 1992. My high school had stopped using them long before.
  11. I don't even remember seeing mimeographed tests in high school. And that was the '70s.

    I remember them being used up until I was in sixth grade, so that would have been 1987-88. We just called them ditto machines.
