So here I am, typing in at work. Shippo, I tried your method of silencing the modem, but nothing came of it and it is still as loud as ever (and today, more unreliable and frizzy).

I'm supposed to be typing into the massive "dancer database" the dancers who have been accepted into the Nutcracker, but I wanted to finish the business database first, or at least the book I'm sticking into the database - after all, I only have part of the letter S left (three pages of businesses in small font). That's small stuff! ::laughs:: Well, really I'm afraid that if I get settled on another task, I'll forget about this one and not continue.

And now for a random statement. Lina's question about the source of the button's power has stumped me indeed. I shall have to think more about this matter, and a title still evades me.

My boss is trying to get online. I have to go.
Current Mood: blahblah

Your best bet may to add the volume command to the init string. Here's how you do it:

- Go to My Computer,
- then to Dial-Up Networking
- Right click on your connection icon, & select Propeties (or highlight the icon and goto File then Properties).
- Click on the Configure button at the bottom of that screen
- Then click on the Connection tab.
- Then click on the Advanced button.
- You will see an extra settings box on this screen. This is where you can put the init string.

(from: http://www.modemhelp.org/initwhere.html)

The init string is probably M0 (that's a zero, not the letter O). L0 may also work. A list of the connection strings are at:
if you're interested. Good luck.
