A long long time ago I can still remember…


To all the still young whippersnappers, this was before the internet became ‘en vogue’ and easily accessible. Unless you wanted to pay 20$ per hour for a dialup connection using an analog modem with a 9600-link, maybe even 19200.

    How about learning BASIC via a teletype machine hooked to a minicomputer via a 300 baud acoustic cup modem. Them was the days, or something like that … :)

      Yes! I remember those. Thankfully I was lucky enough to have had a 2400 modem available at that time. And when sending a fax, it even sped up to a whopping 9600.

      The days of ‘Terminate’ and Z-modem… and outrageous phone bills :-)

    I bought this 2400 modem from you … without the power supply … so we powered it with the current transformer of my model railroad ;-)

    yea, a long time ago … remember your WLAN-bridge project with the drivers that have to be compiled for Suse-Linux and the ISDN dialup …
