Eventually, ALL communications will be digital - NO analog will be 
supported. I don't like to be a "date setter," but I think it's a fair 
assessment to expect some major changes in this direction by the end of 
this year. The ONLY thing that can change that are dedicated FAX and 
modems that are digital.....not analog. To date, I can't find any.

Our phone service is digital because it's a LOT cheaper than any analog 
service I can get here. This "killed" my being able to FAX invoices, 
etc. I use my professional photo scanner to create a good image of 
whatever isn't created on a 'puter and file attach an image. I bought it 
because of the need for a high-end scanner for pro. photo work. It now 
does dual duty. ;) Legally, a scan is as good as a FAX and preferred by 
most because the quality is so much better.


A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.
Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?
