I have used most of the stuff in the list myself, but what the hell is that item from 1980 (first in the list)?

coax network connector, I had never seen it before either.

oh yeah, it's from the early 80s, and since it followed the 70s, my memories may be a bit fuzzy...      :drunk3:

BNC connector I think it was called, used it on the scitex network for the whispers and prismas etc...I think it was 10bt based but I could be completely wrong.

BNC token ring networking connector.


It is a BNC connector, but for Ethernet, not for Token Ring. When I looked up the image I originally also did not recognize it any longer, even though I've plugged in a million of these. I do still remember thinking 'What idiot now decided to use a slightly wider modem cable' when they introduced the current type of plug. I think I still have an ethernet terminator lying around here somewhere. Yup, in those days even the network had a terminator, just like good old SCSI.
