Yes, I'd like to try that because this modem don't work with the Megahertz
Cruisecard 28.8 setting or the 28.8 and faster setting. Anyone know how? I
think there a package out there that does this but I don't have it.

Initial test showed that it's not eating up my battery very much faster than
my 33.6 Megahertz modem. But it seems to download long emails slower
(60-100k) while it is super fast for Newtscape and Hemlock. I wonder if it
has anything to do with SimpleMail 4.0 being the culprit. Anyway, 4.0 is in
beta and I'm reporting to Simon Bell everthing I find.
