I used to connect with a 1200 "baud" coupler modem a looooong time ago, when dumpsters provided my technology more so than stores did. Some real estate office supplied me with the trash I needed to start communicating via PC. I found out I had the top-of-the-line acoustic coupler modem, but was trash because 9600 and 14.4 was the standard. Laughing I had to wait a while to "upgrade." *sigh*

Ah, memories.

Cool

Actually, before we had the digital algorithms that are in such wide use today, you could send a helluva lot more information over an analog phone line on the audio channel than you could with the old phone modems...I mean by the spoken word, which encodes all kinds of information that can't be encoded on the visual textual channel.

But in those areas in which the old maxim "A picture is worth a thousand words" applies, audio information doesn't cut it. So, the technology to send images arose—primitive at first (relative to today's technology), but rapid advances in digital hardware technology soon eclipsed everything else.

Well...except smoke signals from pipeweed, which neither words nor pictures shall ever replace.

I still have one too... AND it's rotary, I kid you not. I love my old phone, super clear reception, feels hefty when you hold the receiver, it's great! I have a cell phone too, but hardly ever use it. We get really poor reception on the cell phone at my house. Also, my cell phone is pretty basic.

For some reason I have always hated talking on the phone, cell or other wise. Don't know why, just never like remote conversation much. Just like using the phone for entertainment purposes.

I would assume it's a man thing, generally speaking. I don't like talking on the phone much either and probably only have one for long distance relatives. Funny though, when I was sixteen, I could talk to my girlfriend on the phone all night long and just hated to have to finally hang up. Laughing

That doesn't count. Teenagers are an entirely different species. The hormones mutate them, or something. If they survive it, they eventually mutate back into humans.

At least, that's what happened with mine.

OMG! You guys are here!!!

BoB has been down for two and a half days over here. I tried different computers, different ways to access the site...nothing.

I felt like a bloody addict with withdrawal all weekend without you guys.

I'm SOOOO happy BoB is working again! cheers cheers cheers

I couldn't log in on Friday - I kept getting a DNS error. I was logged in this morning but I got kicked off and got another DNS error, but (obviously its working again).

I also can't seem to log into my Citibank account to pay my CC bill.

I am finally back on, I think the server has figured out we are all weirdos and is trying to dissuade us from coming to BoB any more.

The Telegraph Troll was a guy who Morse-coded "your mom" after every message. Friends with JW Booth, he was never captured. He now haunts the Internet.
