 It's called ThinNet because the original style Ethernet was much Thicker. 
 ThinNet is less than 1cm in diameter. ThickNet however is nearly an inch in diameter and is a horrible unweidly thing to manage. 
+LindsayDruett says, someone needs to spend some time with him pulling wire...%%%  
+ThinNet is around 4-5mm in diameter (same diameter as Cat 5), the proper thinnet cable is coloured grey, however, people have used 50 ohm coax which is normally used for radio equipment installations and is coloured black.%%%  
+ThickNet is around 8-10mm in diameter, I've only seen the proper cable used which is coloured yellow.%%%  
+Don't forget that each end of the cable is terminated with a 50 ohm terminating resistor, and __ONE END__ is earthed.%%%  
+Maximum length is 180 Metres.
