I don't recall either the 6-pin (cassette port, single-sided) or the 24-pin (user port, double-sided) connectors being particularly difficult to find. They aren't as inexpensive as, say, a DE9 or DB25, but they are still being made, AFAIK. The usual places I start with are Jameco, Digikey, and Mouser. The connectors are ordinary 0.154" spacing edge connectors. -ethan Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
