"Surfing in 1986" Adam Colecovision session with Bulletin Board System

Uploaded on Aug 23, 2009

Amazingly for some reason I captured the output of our new Adam 300 baud modem calling up a Bulletin Board System. Im thinking it had something to do with the long distance charge and no such thing as a screen capture utility.

Read through the opening technical specs to see exactly what surfing entailed in 1986 !

I tried the phone numbers recently, they're no longer valid ;)

The modem itself is now living peacefully in a computer museum and can be found here:
