    Jesus, the internet really is evil. Even the dial up sound is composed of the sped-up lamentations of the damned.

    This doesnt seem like it can be the sound just slowed down. There are fades and such that just don`t happen during modem negotiation. Is it `based` on the sound - sure. But simply slowed down `700%`?

    And how do you slow something down 700%? If you slow something down 100% doesn`t it stop? Are we going backwards 600%??

    Another wrong caption IAB?

    "And how do you slow something down 700%? If you slow something down 100% doesn`t it stop? Are we going backwards 600%?? "

    slowing down 700% = 7x slower than normal. If normal rate = 70 beats per second, 700% slower = 10 beats per second. Though the logic behind this just got confusing because, if i am correct here, then 100% slower = 1x slower so 100 bps / 1 = ..uhh, 100 bps?? Did I just break math? It`s late, bare with me please...

    yes you did break math. And I will bear with you - NOT bare with you.

    You are referring to 700 TIMES slower. Not 700%. 100% of anything is all of it. If you slow it down 100%, you have taken it all away. 50% slower would be 1/2 as fast.

    Besides that, your math doesn`t work anyway. 700% faster is not 7 times faster. 100% faster is 2 times as fast so 700% faster is 8 times as fast.

    @nettech98 No..it`s itself, 100%...plus the additional 600. Not 8 times faster. But the rest of what you`ve said is correct.

    Keith, were you even around when they had dial-up? cuz you obviously don`t know what your talking about...
    anyone know if there is a word for that type of person? someone that immediately thinks they know everything and needs to comment on it, when they dont know poo? if not, we need one.

    My kitty (Tiger) LOVED this! His ears were swiveling and he kept looking at the speakers, lolz!

    It sounds like music! Reminds me of a Sci-Fi story where they trained humans to "sing" data into the computers. It was written in the days of punch-cards, eh?

    Thanks @Angelmassb - will try it with Blue Oyster Cult!
