When You Hear The Tone

. . . please leave a message. Your east-coast proprietor has decamped to the wilds of Fauquier County, far from high-speed access to the interwebs.

Once upon a time, he marveled at the cutting edge technology that permitted him to watch as each individual character appeared on the screen, and a line of text might take a few seconds.

In green, of course.

Nightly packets of information were exchanged between nodes of WWIV, all via copper wire and dial-up modems. We were P2P before it was cool.

No longer. We have advanced to the point that technology incomprehensibly faster, dazzlingly superior, is too clumsy to endure.

Onward and upward.
