It’s not a 300 baud world anymore…

When I started in on this crazy stuff I had dumb terminal with an acoustic coupler (show of hands, how many of you have ever even SEEN one outside of the movie War Games?) running at 115 baud. I moved on to a Vic-20, 5 whole K of RAM, a cassette player for data storage and a blazing hot 300 baud modem. Woo….

Now I’ve got a 7Mbit connection and I can download 250 megs in just over 7 minutes during peak internet usage hours (9pm – 1am EST). it ain’t yer gran’daddy’s modem no more…
