Hello, Welcome to Days of Dial-Up!


Days of Dial-Up is a history blog. It’s mostly informal stories from the past that I’ve come across through current-events, general reading, procrastination, and the occasional one about Haitian history (which I study). Some are light-hearted, and some are quite serious. None are gonna change the world.
