Dammit ! I passed by the waste recycle park and noticed that some of the dumped computers still carried some coax network cards, like the ones I use at home (yes, I know it's 2004). As almost everyone uses UTP, coax cards are rare, and (more) expensive, so when I see a spare coax, I grab it. Unluckily, I wasn't allowed to disassemble the computers, as I need a special permit. What country is this, Russia ?

I got a few phone numbers of official instances that I'll try next week, so with a bit of luck, I'll have my coax cards in the next weeks.

Update : crap. No luck in obtaining some kind of permit. Apparently they still get money for those old machines...
