What is this?!

Sitting in a hotel room, I saw this on the wall. Notice how it is yellowed and dusty and generally lonely. Remember when you would have plugged your laptop’s modem into this jack by the desk in the room? Remember going from 9,600 bps to 14,400 bps all the way to 33,600 bps? Do you still remember the difference between baud and bits per second? (If you do, you are a true geek!)

This plug is quite the anachronism these days.

I hope you enjoyed the trip down memory lane.
