The connector is a 64/VIC DIN style (I assume 5 pin as it was manufactured along with the early 64s. The photos on my p-500 web page are pretty blurry though. I will have to bring it in and do better pics of it). I don't know why having the VIC-II would be absurd; it was one of the computers of the 1982 lineup that included the 64, Ultimax, and B-128. P.S. the SuperPET's 'MMF' stands for "Micro Mainframe". ;-) -- -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+- Larry Anderson - Sysop of Silicon Realms BBS (300-2400bd) (209) 754-1363 Visit my Commodore 8-Bit web page at: http://www.goldrush.com/~foxnhare/commodore.html -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
