     Well then, only give the printer one block at a time.  Then, have it 
     return one kind of error message if the block was "it" and another 
     kind of error message if the block wasn't "it."

Another problem is that the only way of showing results is by printing 
them. So you will have to print out a line like "the block 
6A685B48:40000000 did not contain the key", and something like a 
questionnaire on the computer to mark the processed blocks. Kind of lousy 
job, considering that a PPC-equipped printer may process maybe 80 blocks a 
day.
