The gender today is the smell of gasoline and sound of a dial-up modem.

But I prefer the smell of diesel and pulse dial(atpt).😃

When I moved to our current residence, we had GTE for our rural phone service and we could still dial 4 digits within our exchange. They charged an extra $2 for touchtone dialing. When I ordered my phone service, I demanded pulse dialing, avoiding the 2$ charge knowing full well, they had no way of providing only pulse dialing. We also could dial 7 digits within our area code long after ma bell had forced 10 digit dialing on their victims.

The first modem I owned was a Panasonic "Automatic" modem that was capable of 300, 600 or 1200 baud. It was a real gem at the time.
