Where great old Macs live again!

I wanted Internet at work but didn't want to spend money, so I put my old IIsi in my office there. The small red box between the typewriter and the Mac is a 14.400 modem. Remember the pain ;-)

I'm just kinda shocked there is a typewriter there. Now that's retro!

Yes, my boss then wanted me to write the invoices with this typewriter...

But the calendar was up to date ?
Mechanical typewriters always were a horror to me.

In fact we didn't need a computer beside the rental system then, it was only for my private entertainment. Later, when it was my own store, I installed some server to host our webpage and stuff...

The slowest external I've ever had was a 28k, but I never used it for the Internet.
The Geoports with their 14k must have been really limited, but some people are still using a machine like a 475 as a server. Today, using DSL, things are running better.

This modem was first hooked to my Commodore 64, but Internet started to get more graphical and colorful, so I decided to use it with the Mac. Later I got a 33.6. With my 6400, I started with ISDN... what a progress. Then DSL with the cube was like technology from another planet :-)
