Yes, for me, it was the first ever _home_ network I constructed -- to
connect my and my flatmate's PCs, over a parallel Laplink cable, but
via a proper Win95 Direct Cable Connection LAN running IPX, so we
could deathmatch in Doom 1. :-)

I named it "KEEPIER" after the building we lived in, and as various
machines came and went, that LAN name remained for well over 15 years
after 2 home moves. It's gone now, sadly.
