Blast from the past

Yesterday, for work, I was surfing the web on a 56K dial-up internet connection.

It was s…….o…….s…….l……o……w

No Carrier

It brought back memories of my early days online. Freenet anyone? Dialing into the SHPL/CCPL to do research for school.

Especially since I had to use it to download casino online files in order to access a new web based FTP client (go figure). Apparently the previous (stand alone special FTP client) wasn’t sufficient or something, so users had to migrate to a new portal.

All this had to be done over a special VPN, hence the dial-up. Yes, there is a broadband option available but for an office like the one I work in, it’s not cost efficient.

Oh, and why yes, of course this technology was for Medicare claims
