Oh, and I happened to wander into a local ISP at one point. (They're long
gone now, unfortunately.) Stuck my head through a doorway which seemed to
cause them no end of consternation when I glanced toward the single big tower
that was in the room there, and then on the wall nearby I saw phone wiring
and a whole *bunch* of modems hanging on the wall -- all Sportsters, which I
commented on at that time. Surprised the heck out of me, that did.
