    Sorry this isn't an image but does anyone remember the XBAND? It was a multiplayer modem for the Genesis and SNES. I never got to try one personally but I remember the hype it generated. This is like a documentary that goes into how it was made and how it worked and... this is like actual wizardry. Even their choice to use a 2400 baud modem was calculated. It sucks this thing didn't take off as a success.

    I played a lot of Super Street Fighter on Xband.

    Then I got a $900 phone bill.

    I didn't play Xband anymore.

    Why was it audible? Why not, one could ask. Back in the days, telephone lines were used for audio. The first modems even used the telephone receiver like humans do, by talking into the mouthpiece, until newer modems were developed that could directly connect into the phone line. Even then, the idea of not hearing what's happening on a phone line you're calling on was quite new, and modems would default to exposing the user to the handshake audio. And in case you accidentally called a human, you would still have time to pick up the telephone and explain the situation.

    All you had to do to silence the handshake was to send the command ATM0 down the serial line before dialing.

    The week that Kurt Cobain died the rest of that week into the next I knew of someone that wore Nirvana shirts with a black armband. This made me question what is Fandom? how really weird it is to be a fan of something and how it appeared to others.


    Cementing this was Juliana Hatfield a couple of years later was talking about how Fandom to her was just really weird how people walk up to her expressing it and how offputting it was

    I still have a theory that dial up modems being heard by babies in the womb is what led to Dubstep's rise 15 years later.

    Down pitch the dial up noise and it's the basics of dubstep.

    This is pretty damn 90s, as far as I'm concerned. That title card is everything awful about 90s design and appeal, and the show itself was pretty much 90s in a nutshell.

    The Dag has gotten significantly buffer and more aggro since the 90s.

    Back in the day when dial-up cost by the hour, my dad would tell me to get the fuck off the computer and go to bed. Sometimes when I wasn't able to sleep, I'd surreptitiously try to sneak back online at night.

    Then that FUCKING dial-up noise would give me away and I'd hear my dad's door open and hoooooly shit.

    Fuck you, dial-up modem noise. Why do you still play at full volume even though I've muted the speakers? WHY DO YOU PLAY AT ALL? WHY DO HUMANS NEED TO HEAR THIS SOUND AT ALL, DIAL-UP MODEM?

    My brother and I weren't allowed on the Internet when we had dial-up without parental approval. Naturally when they went out we'd immediately get on the Internet. However we never did it for very long because turns out they would randomly call the house, which if the dial-up was active would let them know by the noise that we were being naughty.

    This did not stop us though.

    I remember a girl at my grade school got in trouble for wearing a No Fear shirt the day she came back to class from her fucking brain surgery, and had a huge 5 inch scar with stitches on the back of her skull. Every single one of us petitioned the suspension because, if anyone gets to wear a No Fear shirt, it's the 11 year old that beat fucking brain cancer.

    We used to have a monthly family game night at Honest Jedoc's Down Home Bookateria. One time my teen librarian put together a trivia contest between the parents and the kids, where the kids would have to answer questions about the world their parents grew up in and the parents would have to answer questions about, like, Minecraft and Youtubers.

    At one point, the kids were asked to listen to the dial-up sound and tell us what it was. The expressions of confusion and mounting panic as it played were really something to witness.

    These awful shirts were everywhere in my junior high (mid 90s), and didn't get banned because LOL Florida.

    By high school (late 90s), they seemed to have faded from the zeitgeist, and the only time I remember seeing anyone wearing them was kids getting caught trying to ninja their way over to the antique cigarette vending machine in the bowling alley where I worked.

    The machine had been empty by decree of state law for several years, but we still took at least $50 out of it a week, which I guess explains why the owner left it out there.

    You could even see inside that it was empty, and the card inserts that showed the available brands had been taken out of all the buttons. And it wasn't even plugged in, so the actual dollar bill feed wouldn't work. But the coin feed didn't need electricity.

    I was always surprised people didn't come to the front desk to complain, but now I'm imagining the kind of embarrassment I'd feel after feeding a bunch of coins to such an obviously inoperable machine, and I'd accept that as a "hide my shame" tax too.
