Re: [Dixonary] NEW WORD: CIMELIA
 
Ah, nostalgia. I fondly remember the Tapfests that occurred from time to time. I recall one out on Long Island shortly after I came east in 1996 and 2 or 3 at a jazz restaurant on 10th Ave in Chelsea in Manhattan. Theresa Carey, Stu Lieberman, Et al. I think the notorious ’Nando Gelbard even showed up on occasion. Those pre World Wide Web TAPCIS days were a trip. <lol>. It’s hard to imagine worrying about per minute charges and 2400 baud modems nowadays.

Re: [Dixonary] OT Nostalgia
 
I think 2400 was my 3rd or 4th modem. The first was a 110 baud with an acoustic coupler that you stuffed a telephone handset into. It was installed on a Western Electric ASR33 that also had a paper tape punch/reader. What fun! I used to have a collection of tapes that would print ASCII pictures, the kind made with letters and punctuation marks. Then came a 300 baud with RS-232 connection followed by a 1200. I was working with TBBS (The BreadBoard System) at the time and a 2400 was for “high speed” testing and to cut down the per minute charges. TBBS was a dial in bulletin board system that could handle up to 16 telephone lines simultaneously.

Me too! I remember using an acsoustic coupler with an Osborne 1, mainly to connect to a client's
prorietary email system. I know when I first travelled on business to the States with a laptop I
relied on dialup to the local Compuserve node. Judy may remember when we first met on the CIS WFH forum.

Best wishes,
Tim Bourne.
