No reason why it couldn't also have pass-through card edge fingers on the opposite edge extending the port; that's how we connected to the IEEE port without the expensive hard-to-find connectors while still leaving a place to connect the standard cable connecting other drives/printers etc., and it would certainly keep costs down. But Jim does have that inventory of connectors to unload... ;-) mike ********************************************************** ----- Original Message ---- > From: Jim Brain <email@example.com> > To: firstname.lastname@example.org > Sent: Mon, May 30, 2011 3:32:51 PM > Subject: Re: sd2iec ported to petSD > > On 5/29/2011 9:41 PM, Nils Eilers wrote: > >> Impressive.
