While working on upgrading a certain Nuclear companies computer systems we had a graduate who had never seen a token-ring network, ahh good old token-ring. Every time someone didn't connect in the upgraded PC correctly we sent him looking for the tokens falling out of the ring to fix it. He did off his own back also start removing all the kinks in the cables to allow the "tokens to flow quicker and speed up the network" he left him doing that as was far easier than explaining!
