Astrotype-tan: AKA ICS Astrotype, AKA Astrocomp AKA Astrocomp 8 -A successful example of IBM/DEC cooperation, her parents are Selectric-kun and PDP-8. (ICS used Selectric terminals with a PDP-8/L and DECTape drives) -Also an inside agent in the Detroit area, not necessarily willingly. -A phenomenal typist. She manages massive documents and edits them in her head. (One of the first word-processor systems with random-access editing capability) -Her sourcery method of 'cutting' words before her and rearranging them seems outdated in modern times since word-processing is more or less an integrated function of most OSes. -Same for her type block hurling attacks. -Seems to know just about everyone (Astrotype and Astrocomp were widely used as office machinery) -Has an older half-sister hardware-tan, Selectric MT/ST. -Works well with humans and hardware-tans. -Status: Alive, probably (Remaining Astrotype/Astrocomp PDP-8/L and tape drive units still exist, even if no longer used specifically for typesetting/word processing)
Physical: Prefers blue and white outfits, usually with words integrated into the trim or any designs on the fabric.

I remember having a swf or something like that with them doing the thing. Do you remember if it exists? I dont remember exactly if it exists but all versions I watched on youtube are not the one I remember and the only piece of the puzzle in my mind is it is related to the OS-tans...
