Default Acoustic Modem

A friend sent this link to me and it'* one of those things you totally forget about until mentioned.
This was how faxs were sent back in the stone age, and even in the beggining of the BBS. What we called the internet before Gore claimed he invented it. These modems converted text to audio signal and then back to text. They ran at 300 baud. A baud is the same a bps. We were trailblazers. LOL!
