Long, long time ago, when our campus first connected to the Internet,
I've setup a NFS connection with wuarchive through a 2400 bps Modem.
The operating system was 386BSD 0.1 connected to ethernet, and the
router was a KA9Q, linking the lab. to the computer science department.
I cannot say it was a good connection, but surely was amazing, since
we had nothing before that. :)
