<P.S. - In this CI$ thread, someone mentioned how expensive the service use
<to be. I got my first modem in 1982 - a VIC-modem for the C-64. CompuServ
<was $6.00 per hour *off peak* at 300 baud. I don't remember what it was a
<1200 baud, I couldn't afford the modem, let alone the online charges. I

offpeak 1200 was 12.50 in 1984, I was on in then too.

<seem to recall that on-peak 300 baud was $22, but that might be bit rot.

sounds good to my memory.

I've been one to hae modem access since 1981'ish to BBSs and CIS a bit later
(1984). CI$ was not only 10 based both they also were one of the biggest
users of clustered 10s.
