So, not my photo, but part of me wants to put one of these together lol. I dunno why, old ass obsolete tech (probably the engineer in me), but something is still appealing about it. Because of that, locating the parts might be a bit of a task. I have found parts for a 10BASE2, but it is still rare enough. If anyone knows where I can get a 10BASE5 kit, lemme know.

I love seeing people still using old practices & outdated technology. It's like being witness to the last moments of a dying art.
When was the last time you saw someone using a pocket street guide like this guy?! London, September 2018 #streetphotography
Evening to you all today was a continuous slog at the paperwork still more to do but getting there. We had some new tech fitted today at TerrierByteIT HQ we now have (will have) continuous connection to our heating oil tank so no unhappy surprises like Xmas a few years back when it was all stolen, Right onto Trivia Time so D.Y.K What Happened on September 18th?.
1926 James Cooley Was Born, James Cooley, co-creator of the fast Fourier transform, was born. Working with John Tukey, Cooley in 1965 worked out a vast improvement to a common mathematical algorithm called the Fourier transform. Although the algorithm had been useful in computing, its complexity required too much time. While working at IBM, Cooley built on Tukey's ideas for a swifter version.
1989 NeXTSTEP OS Is Released, NeXT Computer releases version 1.0 of NeXTSTEP, an object-oriented, multitasking operating system. Originally designed to run on NeXT’s brand of computers, it was later ported to other architectures such as the Intel x86. Often considered years ahead of its time, NeXTSTEP brought to market many advanced features that were not seen together in any other operating system for nearly 10 years. Its powerful object-oriented development environment was also used for the creation of the word wide web.
1990 – The NeXTstation is finally released. It used the 68040 Motorola processor running 33MHz and the 68882 math co-processor running at 25 MHz. 2.88 MB floppy, 8 MB RAM, monochrome monitor, all for $4.995.If you wanted 4096 colors, that would cost you – $7,995.
1997 Apple acquired NeXT Computer to build their next-generation operating system upon the NeXTSTEP architecture, later named Mac OS X. Today’s iOS that runs on iPhone and iPads is descended from Mac OS X and NeXTSTEP.
