Given the relative limited number of enthusiast Commodore users around the world, I can't see what is wrong with requiring them to build or _modify_ an existing cable, something like "Get yourself a standard null-modem cable, but make sure to cut the following lines, as they will damage your computer if connected:" Since there might be a difference in wiring on ready-made serial cables anyway, I think telling the user to hack your own cable sounds just as good as trying to find a ready-made cable exactly matching the specs. (of course, if you are a Commodore hater, maybe you don't mind connecting +5V between two machines and see which dies first ;-) -- Anders Carlsson Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
