From Dick King on Thu, 23 Sep 1999
It's kind of annoying. You can't tell by looking at the ad or sometimes even the box [unless you notice that it requires a Pentium, but they don't always admit that]. I would rather buy an internal modem because the only space i have on my cluttered desk is inside the tower and my transient absorber has no room for one of those little power cubes but it looks like i need to go external to be safe.
- Try following the FAQ link somewhere under
There is an interesting discussion about Linux support for Winmodems and a link to someone else's FAQ for identifying the bloody things.
(I like the idea of "linmodem" as a generic cheap telephony interface card. We'll see what it does to performance and all that, when someone ships code).
