Back in the day many of us used the Terminal Emulator II cartridge to get onto the BBSes and Compuserve, as other programs on disk became available like Telco, fewer people used it to get online due to speed issues, lack of ANSI support or even a buffer.  Later, for BASIC programs with speech it still had a purpose, however with the advent of many more capable games easily downloaded, it would be interesting to see how many people still have and use this once popular cartridge.

I remember feeling a bit ripped off when I bought the thing...  especially given that I had access to some fast modems (for the day).  The improved speech was interesting but not so useful - it seemed like a cart searching for an identity.
