You're running Windows? Got a USB port? The H-P 1000 LaserJet is about $149,
new (the bloody toner cartridges probably cost nearly as much!), and it accepts
PCL docs redirected ("captured", in M$lingo) from LPT ports to USB (all XyWrite
files are formatted with PCL, H-P's "Printer Control Language", and they're
looking to send their output to a Line Printer port, e.g. LPT1). Somebody else
mentioned the model 1000 recently... was it Paul Breeze?
