So I decided to publish a modem ‘tweaking’ (fine-tuning or optimizing) guide for friends that were crawling along on slow 56k dial-up Internet connections. They needed that little extra speed boost in online games to improve their ping.
“In the way the Internet works best, the word quickly got around about how well the famous Modem Tweaking Guide improved performance, and Wilmot’s Website eventually got bigger at rapid speed, to the point where it adapted into a fully functional tech website, with talented writers and contributors dotted all over the world.
