At last


[link to this post]
 
After having the FTTC cab installed in March 2012, it finally had the power feed fitted last month.

Had modem installed today (well yesterday as it's now after midnight), & it has 80/20 sync smile

Now a very happy bunny smile

It's just unbelievable when you see the speeds aren't all just stories made up to frustrate people smile.

Yep, it's a little bit faster than when I started home computing.

Back then in 1977/78 it was 300 baud on my old trusty Tandy TRS80 mod1 + old GPO modem.

Mind you, the printer was slower, 50 baud on an old GPO teleprinter.

This brings back memories; just looking at a plastic case of 15 minute tapes that I made on my TRS80 in 1979/1980. Often wonder if I could somehow get them working in some way?

I seem to remember that printers back in our day, cost an arm & a leg frown

That's why I used the teleprinter (cost £5 as scrap), but was very slow & upper case only. Still, it was fine for printing out listings, when I was programming.

I very soon got fed up with the speed of tapes.

I added the expansion box, & a couple of double sided, 40 track floppy drives.
The Tandy TRSdos couldn't handle 40 track or double sided, so I used Ldos, with was far better.

It was up in the loft for years, but I dumped it about 5 years ago.

Time speeding up like it did for your elders like myself?

It was actually 15 July 2006.

MadMan.
Out of interest, what was your estimated speed, pre-order ?

Thanks

Yes so did I so got a Seimens Tandy workalike; my friend supplied it. Dual 5.25"floppy disks. Think that was running Ldos.
