how do I use a 28.8k (28800) modem with waffle?  it says that
everyone's modem is too slow to login now!

this is because of a signed-integer problem -- all speeds over
32767 are seen as negative.  if you lock your fossil driver at
38400 (the first `legal' speed that will handle 28800), waffle
will not let dialers connect.

to get around this, add a line like `slow: -32000' to your
static file.  the default is `300' (in 1.64), which will still
have the problem.

also, check your /speed= entries if using the 1.65-style UUCP
configuration files.
