Heh, that's ok, that is what it is supposed to be like. I was cruising the local BBS's in 1983 on my C64 at 300 baud. It was so slow but back then you really didn't think about it as that was what it was. Half the fun was trying to figure it all out. So if it seems like a pain, then you are probably doing something right! haha
In the Amiga days we had faster speed by then 1200 to 2400 then I eventually bought a 14400 modem, which I still have with the Amiga.
ANSI, PETSCII and all the terminal settings + transfer protocols, like XModem, Ymodem, Zmodem ahh fun stuff figuring it all out especially since there was usually no cheat sheets or dummy guides on how and when to use all the different features. Plus there were so many choices for term software that it made it even more fun downloading a new terminal and figuring it out.
This is why I am hoping Jim Drew releases his WiModem sooner rather then later as it will make this stuff a little bit easier. No TCPSer or NULL modem cables.
