Re: Lies, damned lies, and statistics that don't lie.

I think I got my first modem - 2400 baud, as I was buying it from saved up pocket money - in 1991

Got my first one in the mid-1980s - a 1200/75 baud non-autodial modem (had to manually dial the numbers on the phone keypad then quickly put the phone down once I heard the start of the answering whistle..)

Managed to double my parents phone bills before they caught on to what I was doing.
