I barely recall using dial up, as we got broadband in 2004, I was only 6! I don't need a dial up subscription, do I? I feel silly asking that...

And the 486 I'll use to connect made it to the door of my workshop, but not quite inside yet. Hopefully I'll be set to dial in on Thursday. Is the BBS currently 24/7?

Actually I do have one modem, but I think it's around 300 baud. Very vintage.

EDIT: My short hardware test in bcom is apparently "Risky!" shall I change modem card?
