Few people will remember "thin wire" ethernet, the 10base2 ethernet used before today’s 10baseT ethernet (which uses the RJ45 connector which looks like a phone jack, but bigger).

Anyway, you had to "terminate" the ends of your cables. And you sometimes had "T" connectors if your machine had to be hooked to more than one other point on the network.

Turns out, these terminators and "T"-connectors make neat cubicle art. (It kind of looks like Maggie Simpson is trying to smoke out of one.)

Pirates Of Darkwater toy, Simpsons, calendar, ethernet terminator.

My wall of business cards. When I moved out of the cube, I typed any
information I cared about into my phone-numbers.txt file (which lives on
my thumbdrive, on my computers at home, and in a password-protected
webspace that is auto-updated).

I have a better award, not quite pictured, actually given to me at my
previous job. This "award" is really just a certificate of
completion for sitting through a 3-day training on the Evolution LMS
(learning management system). The system never was used, not
even 3 years later. Oh, it was purchased at a cost of ,000.
A developer license is ,000/seat. It’s amazing how much people
think their licenses are worth, when the client is a pseudo-government
agency.

business card, certificate.
