    God really needs a better connection than dial-up!

    So, we should’ve blamed Oliver for “Challenger”?

    In those days there WAS no better connection than dial-up (300 baud !!)

    Not “just” dial-up, but the old acoustic coupler style where you had to put the handset on the big ol’ box.

    This was because phones were hard-wired. The wires didn’t have those nice little snap-in plugs like they do now. You couldn’t just go and buy a telephone. The phone company owned the phone and if you needed a new one (your choices were wall mount and desk-mount – only one style of each but a couple of colors) the phone guy came to your house to change it for you.
