Why Network Jones?

So now I have time to sit down and explain why they call me Network Jones.

Back in the mid-nineties, Novell had a ad campaign where the borrowed Indiana Jones and relabeled him “Network Jones” The ads were print. I don’t recall any TV spots.

As a young Novell NetWare engineer, with a last name of Jones, I picked up the nickname Network Jones. I also had a co-worker call me Dr. Jones, a reference to Indy.

The lab at my old employer has a rare print out of Novell’s Network Jones. I’ve searched the Internet and can’t find any references to Novell’s Network Jones, so I’ll have to see if I can find someone on the inside to scan that picture for me. I’ll post it when I get it.

Now you know the rest of the story.
