I paid #15 for a new 100BaseTX switch with five ports. It's about 1" high,
8" wide and 4" deep (there's also a wallwart.) At that sort of price, I see
no good reason to bother with 10BaseT stuff these days unless you got it for

The only reason I've got a cruddy 10BaseT hub still kicking around is that I
hate to throw *anything* away, and it's a handy way of throttling a segment
of the network so the lusers don't cane it too hard.

When I was in the USAF, there was a modem I did battle with, which used (brace
yourselves) mechanical resonators and a glowbottle circuit as an oscillator.
There _really_ _was_ a "Kick here" spot on the front panel, lower left corner,
and the resonator was just behind it.	- Mike Andrews in The Other Place
