Don't forget that if the printout was longer than a few inches that it would roll up upon itself and be impossible to read without the aid of half your library and a spare pair of hands.

Was it the spectrum or the ZX-81 that had the expansion pack that would pop out if you leaned on the keyboard too hard?

    The ZX-80 & 81 were notorious for this, although speccy expansion packs were not a whole lot better.
