Y2K was a legitimate issue, but many crazy comments and opinions were shared. Despite there being some uncertainty - I guess it was the potential "what if factor".

I am sick of hearing this from electricians who are too lazy to wire up a house with cat5.
Just spent last saturday in a client's hot attic repulling cat5 because the electrician said he knew what star topology was and how to wire telephones the new way.
He had daisy chained them.
•bps: How fast the modem can transmit and receive data. At slow rates, modems are measured in terms of baud rates. The slowest rate is 300 baud (about 25 cps). At higher speeds, modems are measured in terms of bits per second (bps). The fastest modems run at 56,600 bps, although they can achieve even higher data transfer rates by compressing the data. Obviously, the faster the transmission rate, the faster you can send and receive data. Note, however, that you cannot receive data any faster than it is being sent. If, for example, the device sending data to your computer is sending it at 2,400 bps, you must receive it at 2,400 bps. It does not always pay, therefore, to have a very fast modem. In addition, some telephone lines are unable to transmit data reliably at very high rates.
•voice/data: Many modems support a switch to change between voice and data modes. In data mode, the modem acts like a regular modem. In voice mode, the modem acts like a regular telephone. Modems that support a voice/data switch have a built-in loudspeaker and microphone for voice communication.
"AMD is going to blow Intel out of the water with their new Bulldozer chips." - Nope Intel are still, faster and more efficient. :(
