Best way to print our own letterhead?

I work for a company that has many sub-companies (an LLC for each project, that sort of thing). We are re-designing our logo and need to reprint all of our letterhead. We have some that we use frequently, which I will be ordering from a commercial printer. We have others however that are used very infrequently (think 5-10 sheets a year or less). How can I best print our own letterhead for those very short runs? [more inside]

3d scan + 3d print = replicator?

Things I would like to reproduce: 1) A very simple place setting that's been discontinued at IKEA (2 spoon sizes, 2 fork sizes & a knife) 2) A simple ceramic bowl my other half made that I broke. :( (Replica doesn't have to be ceramic, just has to be that shape.) Are there any services available that will scan a simple object in 3d and then print a copy of it? Is ZEUS the only way to do it?

Second-hand office laser printer with good quality prints.

I am looking for a laser printer for our studio / office. A second hand one seems sensible and I understand the page count is important, but it's hard to find decent information on the internet about which companies are reliable and which machine produce good copies and have cheaper spares and toner. A3 is important and so is a high quality print. I was looking at a Ricoh Aficio CL7000, but I don't really have any idea! Any help would be fantastic as would suggestions of where I should be buying this thing.

Looking for pc action-adventure game from the 90's

-PC action-adventure game, mostly action, but I do remember simple adventure things like moving blocks or unlocking doors -first person view -can't remember how health stats and weaponry were viewed -Had to rescue a woman (go figure), but not sure if she was royalty or anything, just motivation to do the journey -Started in kobold (or kobolt) caverns, there was a spider cavern section where it was tunnels burrowed by the spiders themselves, a lava cavern/mining level where you had to break down a rock borer (might have been a laser) -mid to late 90's probably because it's graphics were close to Quake 2, just not as smooth [more inside]

Peripheral needs - printer/scanner/copier

I'm looking for a home office solution for B&W laser printing, scanning, copying (in approximately that order of importance, with the ability to fax coming in a very distant fourth). I'd like to spend less than $350. Network connectivity nice but not critical. Pony optional. Suggestions? Am I doomed to a choice between an endless string of near-disposable crappy all-in-one desktop models and far-out-of-budget business class maintenance contract solutions?

Laser XTSL Environment

Years ago, I had a computer called a "Laser XTSL Model 1", I thought it ran DOS, but from my Google searches, I must be incorrect. But I do remember a program for it called "Go!". It was an environment, that, if I recall, looked like an office. It had a calculator and maybe a recipe holder? Could anyone provide more information about 1) The computer and 2) "Go!" (maybe without the exclamation point). Thanks!
