The process of migrating the cctalk and cctech mailing lists to a new host in Chicago is underway. This evening, I've moved the list mail handling to the new server, and this message will be the first live test. Assuming this works, you shouldn't have to change anything to post to the list.
The green web pages, the old "pipermail" list archives, and web access to archives of new postings from this point still require a little work, which I hope to complete in the next day or two. I will eventually import the old pipermail archives into the new posting archive, but that may take a little longer.
The new hosting is provided by the Chicago Classic Computing group.
Many thanks to Jay West for hosting the lists for 20 years!
Long shot but....
I have in my possession a LaserMaster LX-6 controller. The controller allows achieving much higher res from a HP LJII then one would normally be able to (600x300 DPI vs. the standard 300x300 DPI).
If you are really interested can read more about it here:
I have all the requisite HW but I am lacking the manual and more importantly the driver SW. I was able to locate multiple copies of the LM website on The Wayback Machine. Unfortunately, while some of the smaller files have been archived all the main EXE and ZIP files are missing. For example see:
I am wondering if anyone has any drivers for this card. A manual would be most excellent as well but drivers are more necessary. Thanks.

It's vaguely familiar.
Another part of the Rank organization, at one time, was precision measurement company Taylor-Hobson. I remember several of their their instruments in the metrology lab at U. Eindhoven.

I think this may be another of those US/rest-of-world things.
To this Brit, the only company I knew of with this name was "Rank
Xerox" and I had never heard of "Xerox" as a company (nor as a verb)
until I was an adult working in the tech industry and learned of Xerox
PARC and its role in the development of Smalltalk, OOPS, the GUI etc.
So probably roughly in my late 20s or early 30s.
"To xerox" meaning "to make a photocopy" was something I learned
around the same time. This is not a verb in British English, nor I
think in any non-North-American dialects of English.
