The Bird of Paradise, a relative of the banana plant, got its name from the beautiful flower resembling a brightly colored bird in flight
The Bird of Paradise

This is the first URL I got in 1998 - which originally became famous as home of the '56k=v.Unreliable' Modem site at 808hi.com/56k. 56k modems have become much more reliable, and my modem site is now Modemsite.com. Now, dial-up modems are nearly obsolete as most of us have access to high-speed internet - but Modemsite remains available.

808 is the area code for the State of Hawaii (one of a handful of states that have only 1 area code). HI is the abbreviation for Hawaii If you have an interest in obtaining the easy-to-remember domains  808hi.com and 808news.com  - contact me . Aloha! Richard Gamberg.

This popular site is designed to help you get the best dial-up Internet Connectivity with today's 56k V.92/V.90/K56Flex/x2 modems. Its loaded with hundreds of pages of information, troubleshooting and help for modems. Download area with modem drivers and utilities.


I'm changing hosting service for my sites - you are viewing from the new host. There may be a few glitches as I migrate everything - and I'll be updating my sites with new info!

Stay tuned for more new info!
