I remember when all we had were dot matrix printers (and clicky keyboards), and i know it may seem odd, but i bloody love that noise they make!
Now i am also a fan of the quality of my laser printer, so a comprimise would be to reproduce the look and sound of a dot matrix printer, with the internal workings of a laser printer.

Re. the noise issue http://www.webopedi...matrix_printer.html
Read near the bottom "In addition to these characteristics, you should also consider the noise factor. Compared to laser and ink-jet printers, dot-matrix printers are notorious for making a racket." [MikeOliver, Oct 04 2004, last modified Oct 05 2004]

       No, the make that scratchy noise when they print...
I can't really convey the sound in text... someone help me out?
  

       (edit). That last anno threw me a little curry, and i started to doubt myself.
Have reached the conclusion, either you are taking the piss, or you need to get your laser printer fixed!

       But in what time zone? This is the internet or the WORLD wide web, if a time standard is needed i vote GMT

       Yeah, i agree GMT, in which case that april fool was posted at approx 1730 GMT, thus invalidating it
*feeling of foolishness lifted* :)
