Whenever I hear the sound of the old dial-up modems, I am instantly transported back almost thirty years, to a Sunday evening at home. I would typically be trying to upload my report to a UK motorsport magazine, from a race meeting that weekend. Photos were already at the office being processed, having been sent, still in the can, via courier.
It always required several attempts to get the darn thing uploaded and an electronic receipt sent back. If I recall, a report would take around 20mins to upload, but of course, it would often crash when 95% uploaded ...
I would then await publication, and an opportunity to spot spellnig mistakes and typos that were mysteriously invisible the five times I checked it before sending it in
