190 meg down on ultimate, that beats the 300 baud modem on compuserve. Nice upgrade

I remember running a 300 baud on CompuServe. they charged more if you ran 1200. Oh I miss my old Tandy...

Yeah, those were the days. I had an old Atari 400 and a acoustically coupled modem. I spent a fortune in those days on computers.

And their 2400 baud rates were total extortion.... Remember my 300 baud modem on my Atari 800XL though... For the 2400, I had an Amiga 500, and a floppy from AmigaWorld (I think) with a list of BBSes, and that started me off... went from that to running a BBS on FidoNet and AmigaNet, to running an IRC server on the Amiga IRC network, to, well, now...

Heh I remember when I was young connecting to Prodigy under DOS using a 2400bps modem and a 386/25Mhz w/ 4MB of RAM.

Good god how slow it redrawed stuff, but it was still fun for those days.

I had the exact same setup.

First time I bought something "on-line" was on Prodigy. Sears had put their catalog on Prodigy, so I pre-ordered the TurboGrafx Express handheld.
