There's no way a standard-grade blue AUI cable will turn through 90 in
less than 15 cm. It might just be doable with an office-grade cable.
 They tend to be thinner and more flexible than the proper thick blue
ones. Or you could remove the cover and fit a right-angle cover,
probably. You could certainly do that with an office-grade cable -- I
used to have one like that.

I seem to remember having a genuine DEC beige transceiver, about twice
the size of the minature Allied Telesyn ones that are so common, which
had the AUI connector on the side instead of the end.
