Yes, I am aware there are a select few that will get this...

Whenever I download a file larger than a gigabyte these days, I have flashbacks to when it took an hour to download a megabyte with Zmodem.

And I'd have to do something offline while it downloaded because I hadn't gotten a PPP account yet.

Yeah, I kinda miss watching the ANSI status bar and CRC/Checksum mismatch error count.

Yeah, I had a Hayes 2400 through middle school until I "borrowed" a U.S. Robotics 14.4 from my dad's employer.

The name U.S. Robotics still scares me. +++ATH0

Getting around limited net access is still one of my favorite video games.

I ran a WWIV BBS and sysoped for some friends. In some ways it was more interesting than my use of the internet now, at the very least it was more personal.

Some of my favorite people were WWIV sysops.
