Friday 02/06/98 - just found out that AOL
now has X2 access numbers in St. Louis. Called them and couldn't
get connection better than 31200. Also, the connection tone doesn't
sound like the one X2 modems make.
Plenty of services provided: shell access, your own CGI scripts,
CIFS support (which I couldn't get to work). Speed and accessability
weren't that good, though (May 97 - July 97). Also I couldn't find stuff like DNS setup
on their homepage.
Very good price and speed is OK too.
Recently I noticed curious thing - I was disconnected once every 150 minutes.
I called tec support and he confessed that they do this to 'refresh
modems'. But once discovered, they changed interval to 5 hours 30 minutes,
which is almost ok :)
