I blinked a bit

I just saw online a young Millennial go "Oooo!  Dot matrix labels!"  Like it was bespoke artisanal letterpress printing done on linen parchment.  Or vellum!  Like it conjured a misty faraway land lost to time.  A forgotten epoch.

And in a way, I guess it is sort of. 

I can't describe how old this makes me feel.

I wonder if the Smithsonian has an old dot matrix ribbon cartridge and ink refill kit. Millennials would probably have it located near the copper stone cutting tools.
