Well, that pretty much describes ray so.....

Would have been even better if they had the sound up to hear the modem handshake. The dot matrix printer was a nice touch. I like seeing that old stuff.

When was the last time you saw/used a rotary phone.

Every day although the one in the garage is pretty cold on the ear.

I remember the first Emails I ever sent. You had to put the handset of your phone into the rubber cups of the modem so the beeping could be transmitted through the phone. It wasn't until a couple years later that the modem had a direct connection to the phone line. Heck, my first computer didn't even have a screen. You stuck the phone handset into the rubber cups on the top near the back and everything was dot matrix printed.

Remember the old rotary fax machines? You fed the paper onto a rotating drum and the scanner went side to side like an old wax-cylinder phonograph.

This one is much older, but my first experience with one was similar, only desk-top size, circa early 80's:

First company I worked for because they did mostlt GSA and DSA sales had the latest in communications, two WATTS lines for long distance calls and a teletype (no, not FAX).
