I find this statement interesting for a couple of different reasons:

1)  Paying Doom over ARCnet.  --  I don't think I realized that ARCnet 
was standardized enough that normal networking applications would work 
over it.  --  Naivety on my part.

2)  "it was easy to make a passive 4-port ARCnet hub" ... I don't know 
how to respond to that with anything but curiosity and /many/ open ended
