Here is a questions for those who have good memories. I have an old HP 650C designjet printer I use for plotting drawings. I know, it is probably 10 years old, but it works great for what I need. Why get rid of a perfectly fuctional printer if it still does what is needed. I use AutoCAD and Windows XP Pro.
I have one frustration with it. It is slow to spool the file to the printer. I use the parallel port for sending from the computer to the printer. It takes a long time to send a plot to the printer. It is about 5 minutes per megabyte. I have extra memeory in the printer.
Anyone have some suggestions on how to speed up the plotter's reception of the plot file?
