But hey, I bet nobody is writing viruses, trojans or worms for
toasters, doorbells aor C64s.

Unfortunately more of a hobby than a serious productivity tool?

Cool!

Old hardware rocks.

I must get the Apple Mac (512k of RAM and a 9" B&W built-in screen) out of

Which ISP's will allow you to log in at 300bps?

a man gills and he becomes a fish himself."

morenet/in2net/infogen do
it sucks, but it works.

I was testing some strings for my modem and wanted to see how slow it
