The 125 MBit/s looks like a 100 Mbps signal with 4-to-5 encoding. Since
100-Base FX Ethernet didn't exist in 1992 and ATM runs at 155 Mbps, I guess
it's FDDI.

In personal conversations with technical people, I call myself a hacker. But
when I'm talking to journalists I just say "programmer" or something like that.
