DSP can be in hardware, software, firmware -- you name it. It's a pretty generic term. Do you want to start talking about specific hardware devices that are employed by the various providers of this "eFax" service? I don't. Have at it if you want, but you've been arguing against points that I never made this whole time, and I'm just getting bored now.<br><!--EZCODE QUOTE START--><blockquote><strong><em>Quote:</em></strong><hr>I'm treating you like sh*t, because you treat others like sh*t.<br>It's an eye for an eye, loser.<hr></blockquote><!--EZCODE QUOTE END--><br>Thanks, Hammurabi -- you "rule".<br><br>Are you too pious, too young or too immature to just type "shit"?

Meanwhile, I learnt there is something called the Church of SubGenius and the Discordian religion. Fascinating, and otherwise I would never know it exists. Rick Ross has nothing on SubGenius, but there is an "ex cult survivors website". This led me to read some more in Rick Ross, about Madona, Cruise, and Satchivananda (whom I visited for a week). Interesting stuff.<br><br><br> <p></p><i></i>

thought. the official websites of the cable internet corp specifically state that the fax will not work. <p></p><i></i>

Sorry.<br><br>Anyway, my point was that a Digital Signal Processor still needs an ADC on one end, and a DAC on the other, which makes it analogous to a modem by performing the same task.

hava, I don't mean that you shouldn't solicit tech help on this site under USUAL circumstances....these are just unusual circumstances, weird acrimony about digital signal processing vs digital signal processors. <br><br>Somehow, in various ways, your document will be transformed into something that a fax, hooked to a phone line, will be able to understand. Somehow, the online folks have a way to hook send signals over phone lines. <br><br>Evidently, the fate of the world depends on whether you call any device or process that allows this "a modem" or only a subset of such devices. <br><br>Meanwhile, for the edification of all, a list of things DSP can stand for:<br><!--EZCODE QUOTE START--><blockquote><strong><em>Quote:</em></strong><hr><br> * The sterilisation process Dry Sterilisation Process for the cold and fast sterilisation of surfaces.<br> * The science and engineering discipline of digital signal processing.<br> * The microprocessor class of digital signal processors.<br> * Dylan Server Pages is a template engine for providing dynamic web site content using the Dylan language.<br> * The U.S. Air Force Defense Support Program early-warning satellites.<br> * The Democratic Left Party (Turkey) (Demokratik Sol Parti)<br> * The German State Party (Deutsche Staatspartei), a minor political party of the Weimar Republic period.<br> * One of several (unrelated) political parties called the Democratic Socialist Party:<br> o Democratic Socialist Party (Australia), now the Democratic Socialist Perspective<br> o Democratic Socialist Party (Japan)<br> o Democratic Socialist Party (Prabodh Chandra) (India)<br> * Deputy Superintendent in the Singapore Police Force<br> * The Deutscher Spiele Preis, a board games award<br><hr></blockquote><!--EZCODE QUOTE END--><br><br>I think the implications are clear. The wrong choice could imperil our very souls. You have been warned. <p></p><i></i>

<!--EZCODE QUOTE START--><blockquote><strong><em>Quote:</em></strong><hr>Somehow, in various ways, your document will be transformed into something that a fax, hooked to a phone line, will be able to understand.<hr></blockquote><!--EZCODE QUOTE END--><br>That's pretty much the only real point that I've been trying to make here, and since this hypothetical fax machine contains a modem as one of its critical components which are often replaced by their computer peripheral counterparts (modem and scanner), the two things can be considered interchangeable in this context.
