in the 90s when I lived in the family house the cat pulled out splices in a telephone cable as a young kitten (disconnecting the modem), because he wasn't getting enough attention, then 10 years later as an adult cat did the same to a spliced LAN cable 😺

@Famicoman My word, that takes me back. I used to use one of those in the general office at work to connect to CompuServe.¹ I got foul glares from some of the clerical staff for the sheer volume of noise that it kicked out, which seemed to get louder every time I used it. It was only after several months that I noticed the volume slider on the right-hand edge. 🙄
