We used to call that pen-plotter in the old days:

And yes, I still have an A3 serial pen plotter.

Also, there used to be "portable plotters", see here:

In the old times we used pencil stubs, ink pens, felt tip pens, and almost anything that could leave a sign behind.

Nothing new under the sun....:smiling9:

Can you still use it with your default OS or do you need to mantain some old version of Windows to use it?

What do you mean "use"?

Install as a "system printer"?

No, it's a serial, you just send data to the port using an HPGL DOS program (it may be possible to find some Windows drivers but never bothered).
I am talking of something that was already outdated when Win95 came out. :smiling9:

Very similar to this simple thingies:

I know when the heyday of plotters was. That's why i ask. But if you just use it as a paperweight, the question becomes obsolete. :smiling9:

The problem is not winning or losing, it's the thought of having a "split pot" with you that's preoccupying. :rolleyes:
