A little bit of tech-geek history, for those who like that sort of thing:
Ladies and gentelmen, my second modem. The first was a 1200 baud model that someone gave me when I was in high school. This one, though, is the first modem I purchased myself, and it’s the one that got me through college. It’s a Hayes Accura 288 V.34 + Fax, maximum speed – a scorching 28.8 kilobits per second. Or, to put it another way, about 100 times slower than my current internet connection.
My, how far we’ve come…
