Kids these days. :-)
My first modem was a 300 baud acoustic modem I scored off a disused DecWriter II. The DecWriter and modem were sitting on the porch of one of the houses along my paper route. I asked the owner if I could have it. The owner said I could have the whole kit, but I settled for the modem, seeing as it was the only thing I could carry with me on my bike. ;-)
Granted, even by then (~1990), it was a woefully out of date modem. But, it was the right price for someone whose only income was a paper route in a small town.
I still have it somewhere...
At any rate, I guess Dilbert will have to find another excuse to give the PHB about the network.
