Take an adjustable soldering iron, put the temperature at low level, 100 deg C will do.
Pull the back of the paper over the body of the soldering iron (clamp in a vise) and you have a negative of the original print.
You need to experiment with speed and temperature so first try a piece you can loose.
Its a last resort to recover important data and it doesn't always work well depending on the age of the paper.

I have a page with a printout on original HP blue thermal paper that is still very good readable but nowadays I photocopy everything important, mainly bills for the office or taxes.

The only thing we didn’t try. Did try weak chemical to no success.

Big problem now of course is COVID. Layoffs for junior pilots and maybe position reductions (paid by size and speed of aircraft in North America). Bigger the airplane and faster it flys the higher the paycheque.

So if worse comes to worse and I get reduced to a copilot position or captain on a smaller aircraft well then I will retire as the pay and the pension will almost be equal. And then the PTC will be over and the FTS (full time student begins).

The upshot is, this is the perfect gig for going to school also, especially if senior and you can pick your flying to satisfy the hourly requirement. So not really PTC at all.
Hi Geoff,

Thanks for your comprehensive response. I didn't know you're so close to retirement already - also time flies. Yes, COVID 19 is a major disruption mother nature put in many carefully created career plans. We can only wait and watch how big it will turn out. LH published a flight schedule for June recently, carefully crawling out of a 95% lockdown. Politicians here tend to tell the people that summer vacations will happen but don't tell when summer shall begin so far. Lot's of virtual conferences in the EU. Luckily we have slightly different social systems here compared to the US, so unemployment remains low so far but many jobs in tourism are at stake. Close to pension you can remain relaxed though.

All the best (we'll all need it)!

We all get older, but the beer tastes better!

Sitting in hotel in Seoul awaiting pickup to the airport, off to Shanghai then home for lunch Monday.

One day off then to London on Wednesday for a two day layover. Will bring the lap top as I have to recalibrate 38 radio carbon dates I used 33 years ago in my MSc. Also I hear they just opened up the Thames foreshore for walks as long as one social distances, of course your need a permit for that (I have one).

Will be nice to see the outside of a hotel room while away.

I have seen the recession in 81 (furloughed) until 88. Gulf war 1 in 1992 furloughed again until 1996. Company almost bankrupt in 92, 96 and then a merger in 2000. Twin towers on 9/11 followed by Gulf war 2, SARS, recession in 2008. And now COVID.

This too shall pass and I expect (hope) for a rebound in having fun and optimism in the next six months to a year. Fingers crossed!

So stay safe and healthy everyone.

For any Europeans that happen across this thread, the paper I ordered was really excellent quality, bright white, black print, and BPA free to boot (being something of a treehugger the BPA bit is important to me). You can get it from eposgear.com directly (and they sell via amazon too).
