Dialup Bleh

I remember when the modem sound was my favourite sound in the whole world. But that was 1998. Those days are long gone. Now the sound of a modem only annoys me, usually because it means I have just been disconnected. And lately, instead of reconnecting without any complaint, the handshaking doesn’t happen, and then it doesn’t accept the pass. The only thing that will fix it is rebooting. Which is what I’m going to do right now.

And just when I thought dialup couldn’t get more annoying…

    The dialing modem USED to be my favorite sound… when I was dialing BBS’s. The internet came to my hometown late, though, so by the time I’d heard of it, I was in college, using Lab Computers hooked to T-1 lines. I’ve been bored ever since.

    Still, I love to hit BBS’s that are online now. Text-only info just FLIES across a DSL!
