No different from people saying vinyl when they talk about 78
records! Mimeo and ditto are subsets of the same type of mechanism,
and indistinguishable to the masses. As would be a diamond disc and
some other kind of antique records.
Personally I haven't turned on a television in over five years. They
are never worthwhile. Never. (opinion!)

Leah just spotted a program on History International channel which
will be repeated at 2 AM. It has a scene in a vinyl pressing plant,
and now is discussing the typewriter and the mimeograph machine--with
some jackass talking about blue fingers and the sweet smell. That's
the DITTO machine you stupid excuse for a jerk. WHY do I ever think
these programs are worthwhile. WHY?
