I know, right? When my parents bought me my 14.4 baud modem, as a young teenager, I felt like the cream of the crop. I guess I am showing my age here. It's insane how far technology has gone. I remember having to wait HOURS, many hours, to download a 1 megabyte file.I remember getting 1200 and 2400 baud back in the day. When we hit 9600 bps I was ecstatic! And when we hit 14.4 Kbit I thought I was in heaven!!!
Now, it happens in two seconds.
Now, darn it, where is my flying car!!! They promised me this in the mid portion of the last century. I want it NOW!!!
But seriously, I used to run a BBS (Bulliten Board System) using 2400 baud way back, 25 years ago. Everything was slow but it got the job done. If only I was smart enough to understand the future development of the Internet, I would be a very wealthy man right now. Hindsight is always 20/20
