Oh come on... if they give points for that I'll get them too, and I'm nowhere near as computer savvy as you are. Let's see... it gives me 87. But I know that there is a huge gulf of expert knowledge between you and me.

Okay, I rememebr 110 baud and 134.5 baud. 110 was the common speed for TTYs (teletypes). Pop quiz: what machine ran at 134.5 baud?

I remember when going down to the main school office to use the DEC at a screaming 300-baud acoustic-coupler to the MECC system was fast!
