Doughnet Adapter

Last updated on July 16, 2008

The Doughnet Adapter, as seen on 15-Jul-2008. This was assembled in 2000 or 2001 from a Compaq loopback adapter and Dunkin Doughnuts doughnut hole. The N label (done in Sharpie) has faded with time.

This is the Doughnet Adapter, a very special network adapter I assembled in 2000 or 2001 from a Dunkin’ Doughnuts doughnut hole and a Compaq loopback cable. It has occasionally been branded with an N, but this seems to fade a year or so after it’s written.

I’ve kept the Doughnet Adapter in one of the overhead cabinets in my cube since I made it, finally bringing it home tonight so that I could photograph it.

A few months back I broke off a small piece from the bottom and tasted it. It is rancid, but still quite sweet and smells faintly of vegetable oil.
