Software modem. Winmodem. However you prefer to pronounce it.

As far as I can tell, anyway. It requires specialised drivers under
Win32, fails to expose itself as a serial port and has the right sort of
PCI specs to be a software modem.

Not that I will object if you can point me at how to enable it as a real
modem under Linux. :)


The real danger is the gradual erosion of individual liberties through the
automation, integration, and interconnection of many small, separate 
record-keeping systems, each of which alone may seem innocuous, even
benevolent, and wholly justifiable.
