What happens when you take a bored MIT student, a hub and a teddy bear?

A network switch integrated into a Teddy Bear, compliments of the 4e-Mafia. The web page documenting the process of making the Teddy Borg was /.ed shortly after going live, and the bear still lives on the hall to this day. (He does not, however, route network traffic, as that would be a violation of the Institvte's IS&T policy.)
