Today, Internet modems and wireless routers operate at a lightning fast speed. You can just connect to the Internet and the access information you need in a matter of seconds. When it comes to routers, they offer single-band and dual-band channels with the speed range that can go upto anywhere between 2.4 GHz and 5.0 GHz.
However, do you remember the days when the Internet was snail-paced and you had to wait endlessly till the webpage loaded? If you do, then you might also remember 56K dial-up modems that we were so much used to. And to be precise, what about the screech sound that it used to make listening to which you used to sing along, sometimes in utter irritation as well. If you are able to recall the tone and tune, get to the best of it. Bleeoo project is an initiative aimed to preserve the digital history and it is interested in recording the best impression of that ’screech’.
Those who have came a long way from those gloomy Internet days, but still miss the sound modems made during those days; it is time to relive the nostalgia. Visit the site Bleeoo to record a 10 second clipping of the modem handshake sound.
As per Bleeoo.com “Remember the glory of dialing up? Kids today won’t know the shrill cry of a 9600 baud, or the magical “doodleeedoo” of a 28.8 modem. Help preserve our digital history. Join us in recording your best impression of a 'modem handshake' sound.”
