I still have two V.Everything modems as well... and in another drawer of this
desk I also have an ISDN modem from U.S.Robotics... now that was a neat modem
Smile It could switch to V.Everything or ISDN as it needed to IIRC. It was
incredibly fast for transfers... I used that one a lot when we were living in

I'm still having problems with ftp passwords for some of my users, like user
"filegate". That user is the only one who is allowed to upload files on my ftp
server and doggone it, I just can't get it to work. I have authors who send me
files that way, and I really thought I had it squared away, but it's not
working yet. So... authors are emailing me files to my gmail address
( Quite the bummer...
