    All I've been able to find is a place in the U.S. that got it for $8 , it's on this page .

    Also I found an adaptor on-line you can use in connection with the more common M-M centronis cable.
    (maybe you can get some of it locallly)

    That was what I thought too - I did however look over the shop you mention and other N.Z. and AU stores without finding it (BEFORE making my post above) , if the stores I saw have it then they do not advertize it.
    I don't "say" you can't get it in N.Z. just that you apparently got to look deeper to find it.....
    (I think I spent something like 30 minutes trying to locate the cables on-line)

    Bid deal.

    I know DSE had them in Lower Hutt, yet they are not listed on the web site.

    Simply pointing out that MANY people here put hours & hours of work helping others.

    Just a bit of friendly advice - I've looked over several posts and it appears you are trying to talk every ones suggestions down - I'd suggest you dont do that.

    Could you please elaborate heavily on that one ?
    (I think that it is a completely unfair statement , surely I got opinions , and I'm even opinionated , but that I "air" my "sentiments"/"advice"/"thoughts" is not the same as "trying to talk every ones suggestions down") .
    To satisfy you I would have to either "shut up" or repeat what other people "say" or else it would be construed as "trying to talk every ones suggestions down" !!!

    I happen to be rather intelligent and have several years of deep experience in computer and other tech related stuff so ofcourse what I write would reflect my experiences and I would attempt to give the best advice I could !

    But "listen" friend , take a vote around here and if people generally feel as you I'll be gone in a jiffy !!!
    Probably won't stay long anyway.....

    well , yesterday you had your name to ten threads or so in rapid succession....

    agree with WT,

    quality over quantity of replies, its not a race to put an answer to everything that people ask of on here.

    Please elaborate on that :
    How is the number of threads with my name on be made equal to me "trying to talk every ones suggestions down" .

    And the quality of my replies would be what ? and that I have made many replies is yet again equaled by you as : "trying to talk every ones suggestions down" ???

    All I can understand from that is that you are unsatisfied that I spend too much time , by your judgement , trying to help people , or giving them my advice or opinions on things that they have asked for opinions on.....
