Teletype Printer Adapted to Send and Receive Text Messages

Kids these days, what with their "Internets" and doing the Twitters and whatnot. Why, you can send perfectly good long-distance messages with a teletype machine! That's what a fellow named Mdziewie did. He rigged a 1963 model teletype printer to accept and transmit text messages. The site is in Polish, but Google Translate will give you a sense of how he wrote the software and modified a modem. You can watch a video of the machine at the link.
