It’s a memory from the 1990s. My dad had one, so I also could go online whenever he was at work. I used to copy posts from lists and forums that interested me and read them later on my own computer offline. Our phoneline was always busy!

I want to write about crust.
Crust is the best part of anything. it compliments the rest by being it’s dryest. it is where all the flavor goes. it consists of the rejects of the dish. it is superb, beneficial and delicous. only ignoramuses do not enjoy Crust. Crust is the heartland. firm and textural. it is to be savored, worshipped and devoured. Crust is the world without center.
some computer thing that is upstairs in our den
attached to the desktop for internet purposes
something i don’t really know specifically
makes me think about how i overlook many things
something so necessary, and yet, overlooked by so many
just like life; something so necessary, and yet, overlooked by so many.

For internet use. Dearly essential to all of us who wants to stay online all the time. It’s something that you’d want to have in your home for better internet connection. I reckon it’s a need in every household.

Modem is a country in the southern hemisphere madeup of a population of two hundred. One hundred of the population are sheep. The grass is painted blue by the government.

what is modern anyway? I guess it just means like in the future? Or is it a parent’s way of trying to say cool or hip : I love your dress… it’s so … modern! Thanks Dad. I mean modern just makes me thing of architechture magazines, and i’m telling you, i got to a pretty desparate point when i started reading those. Over and out!

The internet would not connect. She was getting pretty desperate and slightly annoyed. A call to the phone company earlier this afternoon had proved that nothing was wrong, but still, when she tried it again, she realized nothing was working. This drove her frustration deeper. What about the “date night” she had promised? It was the only way she could communicate to her secret sweetheart.

i don’t really know what this word means but i like it. it’s hard and it bites my tongue the way you did and the way i wish you still would. it starts and ends the same way too. we didn’t do that. we ended worlds away from where we began and maybe that upsets me.

Old now, buzzing, with some wild insect trapped inside it, apparently communicating with something, or someone, a go-between, gone now, swallowed up by time.

“Here we go again,” John thought when his internet browser informed him it couldn’t connect to the internet when he just finished an entry about a case. “Sherlock, if you keep disturbing our connection with your experiments, I’ll have to take out our modem,” he threatened.
There was silence in the kitchen where Sherlock was working on and the connection was back again. John smirked knowing full well Sherlock can’t do his work without the internet for research.

A piece of electronic thingamajig used for internet connection. Heck without it how in the world would people get connected eh? A brilliant invention that has changed the way people communicate, connect, and discover things.

I groaned. The internet was playing tricks on me again. As I rapidly move my mouse in circles, the cursor on the screen remained in place. The monitor blinked at me mockingly, the radiation reflecting on my glasses.
It was as if the world had turned its back on me as my laptop stared blankly right back.
What did I do to deserve such torture?

give me a 56kbps modem and a phone line i’ll play with my friends and share all my feelings… that was yesterday

Modem? Like the internet modem I reckon? This reminds me of all the times I’ve over heard this word in my home. Quite often actually. It’s odd because I still have no idea what it means.
By maria on 07.05.2012
It’s an internet thingymajig I never know whether it’s something different to a router or not. What does it do? I don’t know and I have a GNVQ in ICT. Useless education system. But then the internet is quite a new thing I suppose. I got broadband at home yesterday, very excitring. It’s because I’m quitting my job so I won’t have internet at work! Modem. I like that word, it starts and ends with an m. Sort of semi-symmetrical.
By Annie on 07.05.2012
I think I have a modem. I dont know what it does. It is black and I think rectangular. I dont like it. Peolple push its buttons all the time.

last yesterday i had lot of problem with the new modem that i had bought before the last vacation . i did not upgrade it so it started acting up. new modems provides faster connection
nowadays, you can see at least one modem in every house. since using of internet is growing. it can be a modem for telephone
By marjan samadi on 07.05.2012
you have no idea how much i love my new modem, it is a really black one and i borrowed it from my grand mother. imagine! my grand mother has a very modern modem !
The one thing I cannot discern
To be either connection or death
The thoughts along with it are too distracting
To focused just as well
I don’t know…
By Joice Joker on 07.05.2012
Why were modems even still in use? Honestly? As I impatiently tapped my fingers against the flat of the keyboard watching the little timer spin in frustratingly slow circles I cursed again the slow pace of technology. 2065 and STILL modems had a place? BS!

The modem rang with a clink and clank. He made his corrections and checked his work. It was still not modern enough. He’d have to check the pneumatics and start over. He kept ripping the paper and his letters were all lopsided and he needed to get his things in working order. He set to opening the top and inspecting the insides and sighed.
“Again? I thought I replaced that socket!”

A modem is something I used to loathe as a kid. “why is the damn modem too slow?” kids don’t know words like “modem” today. Modem stands for modulator demodulator. Learned that in trivial pursuit. DVD version.
By LJ on 07.05.2012
i am so glad the storm didnt knock out the modem or i wouldnt be able to see what is the word of the day; much less anything else on my computer. I do wish tho that after all these years online that we would stop paying rent on the modem and buy our own modem.
By fanona on 07.05.2012
our internet modem never works and all the wrong lights flash all the time. The WiFi therefore never works to its potential and we’re always sitting at awkward places and angles to make it work

Modem. Modem. I’m not actually sure if I know what a modem is. *face palm*. The horreur. Well. I’ll have a guess then… she rode her bike to school, the flowers bouncing and dangling from the basket in front of her. It was her common modem of transport and she wouldn’t have it any other way.

Jackie couldn’t connect to the Internet, “Windows can’t connect to dorm-network,” her computer said in a pop-up menu. She clicked “Troubleshoot problems,” and the computer
“reset network adapter” and “detected problems,” and came up with “The problem couldn’t be resolved.” She clicked the button “give feedback” and spammed the “This information is not helpful” box, but the computer couldn’t “send the error report” because it was “not connected to the Internet.”
“You having any trouble with the Internet?” Jackie said, when her computer froze after trying to send too many error reports at once.
“No,” her roommate Julie said. She was lying on the bed, looking intently at her screen. Of course not.
Jackie started the process over again, and again, and again, until suddenly it was 6pm. It was easy to spend two hours trying to connect to the Internet, even through you really had nothing to do on the Internet.

Modem is a word that i first came across while setting up my first computer.Since I am not a computer geek I do not have appropriate knowledge about it.However, I think it is an interface linking a software to hardware ,thus enabling the component to function properly.

We have a modem in the house. I think it is the source of all my pain as it is very slow; hence my internet is a also painfully slow. Meaning I cannot watch the first series of skins on youtube. I am very deprived.

Mankind has lost its way. With the advancement of technology everything seems to artificial. I am nothing. You are nothing. What I see is a pure wasteland. Our history is vanishing; the animals dying; our soul being corrupted. We think to much and feel to little. Our modem, our connection, is gone.

Blink. Blink. Light. One flash. You expect a a beep. And a small martian to descend from a staircase. Such are the wonders of technology. ‘it’s like magic’. Blink. Blink.

There is no modern romance. And yes, I proved that today. I started believing it a long time ago but my hopes were held high last summer and I got lost. I fooled myself into believing that maybe there is. It was a mistake. Romance and me, We don’t really go together. I wasn’t made for romance, I was made for reality. And you just made me realize it the hard way. It’s your fault. This is your fault.

I crashed. I wasn’t supposed to, I was’t meant for this but I crashed. I gave in.
This modern world, though advanced, killed simplicity. Things are a lot more complicated. And I don’t know how to handle it.
modem. all i think about is modem. that is if modem ends in an L. I like watching modeling. Models are more like the canvas, than beautiful women. I don’t think the majority of people find models to be attractive, or what women should look like.
anyway. modem. i wonder what the origin of modem is. A modem is where wifi comes from… right? if the word is describing where the internet comes from, maybe, originally, modem means where connection comes from. maybe the origin of the word means heart.

I once had a little modem,
Nothing did it do,
So I sat unhappy
My modem started weeping,
‘You haven’t fixed me right.
Push me here and thump me there
And all might then go like a hare.’
