Very cool.

My first was a crappy 300 baud Atari 835, worked for about a month. Then I found
out that the the CPU crapped out (8048, with 1K firmware burned in). So a few months
later I started working for Microcomm (not the modem maker) and they had 2 Cermetek
300/1200 dev board modems. They work great. :-) I got to dial into all sorts of
BBS. I even got dial into the Soup Kitchen (Rutgers) and t he USENET before the great
renaming. Then a bit later Archie, Veronica, and Jugghead. The research project I
found and learned about showed the promise of the Internet before Greencard SPAM.
