echoed 5 seconds later. Don;t know if your data is in ASCII with line
breaks though.

Even better scheme - and legal too.
Buy two KSR 33 teletypes, or if you can find them a paper tape punch
and a paper tape reader.
Send the data to the serial port where your paper tape is punched. Set
up a serias of pulleys and rollers
across the office - where is located your paper tape reader.
Delay time is of course easily alterable by increasing the tape path.
You will also need a PFY to feed more paper tape in.
