[time-nuts] HP E1938 Web Page

My plotter emulator (7470.EXE) will actually render the file, but not at a
high-enough resolution to read the text.  Plus, it was stored in portrait
mode for some reason, which is a problem for both 7470.EXE and the other
HP-GL viewer I have on this machine (the free GC-Prevue Gerber viewer).

So if someone can rotate it and render it to a .PDF at a decent resolution,
that'd be helpful...
