My daughter, Shawna, gave me this some time back. I kind of take it for granted but today for some reason it just caught my eye in a special way, so I thought I’d share it with the world.
A few years ago she was shopping around and found this little trinket:
Believe it or not, it’s an old 2400-baud internal PC modem that someone mounted on a base, including part of the motherboard!!! Then whoever this inventive soul was mounted a clock on it!
A simple little trinket, but it’s one of my cherished possessions. So no, you won’t see it up on eBay – at least not mine! :)
PS: Yes, boys and girls, at one time having a 2400-baud modem meant you really had a hot system! (I once had a 1200-baud half-duplex modem – wouldn’t go full duplex on my Apple II Plus – and was envied, so that dates me a bit.)
