My mate Dave Ruby emailed me the above picture of the launch in the United States of the Madge CAU and LAM. The CAU and LAM operated as a token-ring hub. Dave is the guy in the middle becoming better acquainted with the cow. The Madge CAU was a solid bit of kit that rarely went titsup, and compared to the IBM CAU 8230, it was the bull's bollocks. When it came to IBM, we never turned the udder cheek!Eventually, Madge went titsup and IBM ratted out to Cisco.
