Kukunet!

[Kukunet label] This is the label from a roll of chicken wire. Since our ISP is UUNet, this always makes me laugh.

I kept it for some time and then used it in this project:
[In The Making]

I was building this thing:
Networking Cable Demonstrator
Through the help of Chris and Cad, and of a local man in Tala who used to work in Goonhilly as a networking engineer, I have managed to assemble a small collection of network cable samples. They are, from left to right:

  1. Some kind of thick coax with a screw connector. Not real thick Ethernet but something similar that I picked up on a visit to UUNet Kenya
  2. Loose bundle fibre optic cable with four fibres
  3. Unshielded twisted pair cable: four pairs of wires with an RJ45 connector
  4. Shielded twisted pair cable: four pairs and a layer of foil shielding under the outer cladding
  5. Wireless! X)
  6. Thin Ethernet coaxial screened cable
