Please forgive my infrequent lurking. For those who do not know me (most of you) I'm the guy who helps Kelly in the consignment room at VCF-E each year.
I've decided to build a 10base-5 LAN segment in my basement. Right now I'm in the collecting the parts stage and need 2 or 3 AUI cables no more than 2 meters long. They must have that arcane DB-15 connector with the sliding clip.
I also need two N-connector terminators (50 ohm, of course).
So far I have a three short lengths of real ether hose with N-connectors and three Cabletron ST-500 transceivers (2 more would be nice). Unfortunately these have a BNC connector where the vampire tap should be, so I'm working on that.
In the meantime, some short, good AUI cables would be a big boost. I will be happy to pay reasonable price plus shipping. Anyone?
Longer term, would it not be cool if our museum had a working 10base-5 LAN hanging from the rafters providing connectivity between the Vaxen, PDPs and other period machines? Maybe even to the inter-tubes!
