Oh my gosh, I used those!

2741's, wylbur, or both?

I believe 2741's were used with other systems, too.
Though many that mentioned them I never saw them used with.
They run at 134.48 baud for about 14.8 characters/second,
as I understand it carefully adjusted to the speed of the
selectric print mechanism. They are not ASCII nor EBCDIC,
but a character code closer to that of the printing
mechanism and type ball.
