Remembering PIX: The Pension Information eXchange


Recommended Posts

I still remember the joy of upgrading from my 4800 baud modem to a 14.4kb modem and it was screaming. It would upload the answer packet and download the new message packet and I was golden for another evening of trying to keep the hell up.

Oh, 14.4k! Gawd, faster than a 9600, and already at 9600 one can hardly keep up with the type as it scrolls across the screen.

Mine was a Practical Peripherals -- I can't bear to get rid of it. I'll take a photo!

I remember my 2400 baud modem, which had a little green light on the front that lit up behind the silhouette of a rabbit, when the modem was able to negotiate a 9600 baud connection with the other modem! High-speed, man, look out.

I just found out that Lou Filliger passed away last August. If you spent more than a day on PIX, you would remember him.

Strong opinions on just about everything and an incredibly avid hiker. I never got the opportunity to meet him in person and I'm very sad about that.

 

RIP, Lou.
