weird cables question

From: Cameron Kaiser (

This is going to be one of the stranger questions asked here, but reviewing
the pinout for a DB9-DB9 (should be DE9, of course ;) PC null modem, I don't
think this will short out two Commodores with their joyports connected with
one. Does anyone know?

Would a straight-through wired DE9-DE9 male-male be safer?

Trust me, there is a reason for asking this question :)
