    I was so excited when I upgraded to a 36.6 once!

    Hell, when I was a kid, we didn’t even have cable! Never mind the Internet.

    Been there, already feeling that. Tech just moves along very fast. Don’t let it get to you.

    Don’t make me dig out my old Novation CAT 300 baud modem with the ‘ear muffs’ on it to hold the phone hand set. Back then, there were no graphics on the internet, just text, and that would scroll onto your monitor slow enough that you could almost keep up with reading it as it appeared. I believe I got that back in 1982, along with my 1st email address ( ‘xx##’ @ … where the ’x’s are letters and the ‘#’ are numbers … part of the ‘Freenet System’ from engineering colleges at the time ).

    Yup. I remember the early 60’s: we had a black-and-white TV like everyone else (except a few rich people), and no A/C in the car (that was only in Cadillacs). Email and computer networking were pipe dreams, as were computers smaller than a car.

    Freshman year in college, Apple II (and III?)s and IBM PC XT’s were on the market, and 300 baud was the best available modem. I remember the upgrade to 1200 baud, when suddenly it could paint the screen (with text) faster than you could read it, and we all thought “Finally! A modem as fast as we need.” (That’s still, BTW, 45x slower than the US Robotics modem pictured above.)

    In college 1973-77, we did our computer programs on punch tapes!

    Hah punch tapes, when I was in college in 81’ we had moved up to punch cards, and decwriters.

    I remember getting our first color TV, so that we could watch all 3 channels. Which seemed to have more good stuff on than 50 + channels do now.

    Yeah, I do, and I have no right to, because I’m at least half the age of most of the older people around here.
