My Home Network Looks like a Subway Map

I'm amazed at how complex this has become - 7 different networking technologies are used to connect everything together.

As a map fanatic of longstanding and a particular fan of the Underground map I think you're creation is really quite clever and fun.

Also it's appropriate: when Harry Beck designed the original Tube network map, he was coming from a background in electrical engineering drafting and was inspired by electronics schematics.

Well done.

This is beautiful! I like the idea very much. I don't have much of a network these days, but when I do, I'll make one ust like this!
