    Too funny. I remember having a 2400 modem and upgrading to a 14.4. I was amazed at the speeds I was getting at the time. :icon_ lala:

    2400 baud! HA, my first modem was 150 baud...then I upgraded to the 300 baud modem! Now THAT was an upgrade. At 150 baud, you could watch the sentences being composed across the screen! LOL! :D

    And how about dot matrix printers?! :p

    I remember that too, watching the text print across the screen. I showed a friend that I had access to the inter-net and he just walked away.

    Dot-matrix, remember people doing graphics with the ASCII character set?

    We do have it lucky now!

    We had a service called "prodigy". Not really the internet. Had to talk my husband into getting a color printer.
