The CHAOS net (capitalization varied, but original docs usually use two words)
hardware did use the heavy-duty CATV cable (not the indoor stuff; I have a
chunk of the heavy-duty kind they used too :-), but not vampire taps; the
transceivers had T-connectors on them, and to install one, one put connectors
on the ends of the cable segments, and screwed them onto the T-connector.
