Friday night topic: Reminiscing


— 8:26 PM on May 31, 2002

Take a look at this story at Salon.com about the good ol' days of Atari 800's and 300 baud modems, then come on back and share your favorite stories from the days of BBS's. If nothing else, brag on the l33t hardware you had in the day.

Personally, I cruised with a 300 baud Zoom modem firmly planted in one of the slots of my Apple //e. I was so stoked when I got the vaunted 80-column card that doubled my RAM to 128KB. I never had more than the one floppy drive though. :-)
