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.

A year or so ago, I actually had to remember some of the old terminal controlled modem commands and x/y/zmodem protocols for something at work. There was a old piece of comm equipment we needed working from that era. Weird flashbacks to a misspent youth.
