Re: Cat-5?

Yep, think it's an example of how stories get gradually embellished over years of telling. I'm sure the broad story is accurate (a guy with a new machine accidentally hogged the network), but in 1990:

* Cat5 didn't exist

* Windows wasn't really used

* The latest nifty processor back then was the 486
