Me personally? No, but I have used it. IP over 9600baud serial actually
isn't that bad for IRC when you're in the middle of the woods and all.

You want slow... read about winlink2000, the email/messaging system for hams
and emergency response. It's PSK on HF, meant to be reliable but if you get
more than 400bps you are doing GREAT! It's so slow that you can run the
software on two laptops using the sound cards, and they'll talk across the
room via speakers and mics no problem. It sounds kinda like robots rapping.
