Here's another funny one...
Shows up as $28.90 for "standard shipping" from NC to FL.
$30? To ship a CoCo3?
You KIDDING me?
I hope that's FedEx Overnight!
UPS Ground, that's like $12-14!

Depends on the distortions... ;-) "back in the day" I was able to whistle several different characters into my 300 baud modem. I was "bummed" that I could only get one pegged for my 1200 baud modem, and I tried, failed, and got really dizzy in the process ;-) trying to produce characters whistling into my 2400 baud modem. I didn't have a Modem IB, tho - I had the little white CoCo specific 300baud modem of the time (with the red bar-button); I can't remember the model # for it, tho. Laterz!
