I used to sneak out of bed at night, and i would cover the modem with books, blankets, and whatnot, just to keep it silent so my parents wouldn't wake up. It was always this pause right after it was connecting, where i listened carefully for movement upstairs, and if i heard nothing, i was safe. We didn't have a soundcard on the pc anyways...

I also remember the different connection sounds for slower modems (2400bps through 33.6Kbps). The first time I heard a 56K modem connecting, I thought it was broken when I heard it that harsh bit starting at about 00:14.

Kind of makes me miss the BBS days.

#4 Are you my unknown twin brother/sister/dog? I did just the same thing, went down to the basement where the house PC was (this was before everyone and their goldfish had a few PCs of their own) and made sure to cover the modem as well as possible, holding the breath after the handshake to listen for movement.

Ahh, the memories...
