Surely, other speeds were possible; surely there were people who used other speeds. But sitting at my Macintosh LC 2 with my 2400 baud modem.. well, the knowledge such things were possible helped me none.

*sigh* It takes me back to the old days of Bulletin Board Systems and user meets with all the other hackers and geeks that lived near me. To think that one day things like Tradewars would evolve into games like almost brings a tear to my eye. *sniffle*
