    Wow, pretty sure this is the computer that we had at my house in the early 90s. Never could remember what model it was!

    This is from 1986 — why all of the schock at seeing a modem?!?

    What’s more fascinating is seeing someone else, besides me, had rotary phones in thier 1980s dorm room.
