“Modern speed measure: BAUD”

I’ve gone all the way back to 2003 in the crossword archive and it’s weird encountering a word that was once so essential to my online life and has completely disappeared since. (Because apparently signals have gotten a lot more complicated and I can’t find a clear explanation but I *think* modems are getting data more than one bit at a time? Anything involving waves and frequencies has always gone way over my head. I’ve asked ChatGPT but can’t trust the answer 🤷)

Want to know when I post new content to my blog? It's a simple as registering for free to an RSS aggregator (Feedly, NewsBlur, Inoreader, …) and adding to your feeds (or if you want to subscribe to all my topics). We don't need newsletters, and we don't need Twitter; RSS still exists.
