Well, excuse me, but this mini-discussion of fax machines fits quite
well into discussions of Technical Writing issues. Granted, it isn't quite
the same as a grammar or style discussion, but in these days of working at
home or on the road, a good fax modem could be the difference between
getting a project done or landing a consulting contract. I am sure that
tapping into comp.dcom.fax would produce a great amount of useful
information on the nitty-gritty operating specs of Brand A vs. Brand B,
but the original question was a generic "I need some advice on a fax modem"
that didn't call for fine-print specifications answers. I am sure there
are others on the list who aren't familier with fax modems and the need
to convert the resulting images into useable text to import into a
Happy Monday!
