Hello.

I just wanted to put in 1.44^2 cents here... I hope that there isn't
anyone working on a Winmodem driver. I feel that there are better things
to waste time on - like coming up with a standard for sound card
programming. Winmodems in general (IMHO) are a brain dead design. I have
yet to see a piece of software do as good or better job than hardware.
This also applies to Winprinters and anything else Win.
