RE: More Delta Pictures
You can see two of these "high-speed" modems in the pictures. One is seen on
top of the HP 2621 terminal on Ernie's desk. The other is on Boas' Beehive
terminal. By the way, I spoke with Ernie yesterday and his recollection (or
maybe interpretation) of the picture of the unknown student is that it the
student was waiting in Boas' office to get reamed out for some reason. The
1800 baud modem and model 565 keyset telephone on top of Boas' Beehive can
also be seen in the foreground of this picture.
Glad you like the pictures. Thanks to Ernie for finding them!

Nice! Bob one of your captions states that after the move from DuPont
that anything above 300 baud was a luxury. But I remember that after
suffering at 300 baud for some time we finally got two "high speed"
lines that were advertised as functioning at 1200 baud. Then, with
some experimentation I discovered you could run them reliably at 1800
baud (a 50% improvement! :). These were connected to the beehive
terminals. You'd think around here in Beehive country I'd be able to
get some beehives used, but I've not seen any. Maybe they don't last
that long :-).
