If I go for a printing solution, I'll probably choose the RedEye IR module, since I've got a pair of 82240s already. There are other HP-IL shenanigans I wouldn't mind trying though. Can you use floppy drives with the 41, or is that more a 71 and Portable thing? Could probably do interesting things by sticking an Arduino on the bus too.

I highly recommend a PIL-Box. With it you have access to a virtual printer, mass storage device, and displays. Using the mass storage device you can access the Museum's LIF archives. Smile

Yes, the 41 can use the 9114 disc drive, but why? With the PIL-Box you can have discs up to 16Mb in size! If you want portability then take a look at Tobie's PIL-Box/Arduino SD card mass storage device.
