*> several megabyte file, these few hundred bytes absolutely could not be
*> convinced to traverse the ring counter-clockwise from this building, yet
*> could travel anywhere else just fine. If we tried to send a packet with
*> these data, the FDDI interface would always accumulate an error.

*> The conjecture is that there was a particular bit pattern that would
*> reliably get corrupted by the reflections on this fiber. Cleaning the
*> fiber fixed the problem.
