(slightly surreal reading about a mechanism of recording sound while recording sound :D )
If they could only have imagined the technological journey that would bring us to the digital age . . . .

I remember seeing the hot lead linotype in action when I was a kid. By the time I was in college, it was the copper plates for high-speed offset lithography. Now, --- the digital age, beyond my ken!

Another PL OK Section.
Thanks.
