    Actually, I find it interesting that people are getting those old
    computers doing modern stuff.

    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
    the garage.

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

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

    I was testing some strings for my modem and wanted to see how slow it
    was in the way back time, before 28k(where I entered the world)

    I guess it depends if their modems will go that slow. Are you using an
    acoustic coupler?

    they probably aren't using "modems" per se... but yeah, most should go
    that slow.

    Do any ISPs still support SLIP over dialup? I thought they would all be
    insisting on PPP by now.
