ObHack: Some kind soul thought it would be hilarious to rip the end off of of one of our BNC ethernet cables in one of our X terminal labs. Said end of cable had the terminator on it of course and the lab was unusable. Also unfortunately this lab has the PC that lets us get our files from UNIX onto PC disks and we needed to transfer some files. We ended up opening up a multimeter one of us had there and holding the stripped ends of the broken cable onto one of the resistors in there. Worked too =) Benno.
