Morse Application Protocol

A one dimensional copy of the web page is created. When interrogated, it is rendered in Morse code and sent to the recipient.

Useful when your modem is broken. You whistle your requests in and the server replies in Morse.

       This idea is totally laughable. However as I always support basic, reliable technology over complex failure-prone technology, you get a croissant. Next up, smoke signal IP routing.

       A minor flaw in an otherwise splendid notion, but how does the server know when your modem is broken, so that it can serve Morse instead of whatever it usually serves?
The next innovation: 'Voice over Two Catfood tins and a length of string'.
