Early access to arpanet

Check out this guy's story of his early online experience. This description was written a while ago.

It bring back memories. I used a teletype (tty) with 110/300 baud acoustically coupled modem from my high school in Fairfax Co., VA to dial in like Keith. I used to type @O 77 on the TIP (Telephone Interface Processor) from my tty to get into MIT's DM machine back in '76 and '77. I played Adventure (ADVENT), but when Zork came out, it had way cooler maps.
