  • Who remembers this?


    I had a 300 baud (300 bit/sec) modem for my C=64 back in the day. What is amazing is the transfer of a character would be slow.

        That's really amazing! :) The oldest modem I've used is a 33.6 external box modem on a 486SX (was my Uncle's desktop running Windows 3.1).

          Wow... I'm honestly surprised that thing still works. Goes to show how quality has been replaced by quantity.

            My first modem was a 2400 bps Zyxel, and I think I paid well over $100 for this top-of-the-line model, around 1980. It could even handle those new-fangled "fax" thingies.
