Jason, all

Thanks for the minutes.
The proposed time works out only so-so for me, but at least I try to
be in the channel and backread the conversation.

Wrt the issue on IDC10/DB9M cables
What I did was making my own. Fairly simple.
Find a piece of flat cable (10 wires, or make one 10 wires). If it
already has a 10 pin connector that is nice (actually perhaps 12 would
also work just make sure you have the 2 that are unused at the same
side). If there is no 10 pin connector add one (use the ones that you
just can clamp on (if that is the right term))
Then add a 9 pin rs232 connector at the other side. Make sure the
orientation is right and that you drop the 10th line, not the 1st.
With a small razorblade or so in the middle of the flat cable free the
2 and 3 lines, cut these, strip, connect 2 to 3 and 3 to 2, solder and
off you go.
Of course you could also solder the rs232 connector.

Wrt the Tshirt sizes:
- I've added mine to the wiki.

Frans.

be posted before 0800 UTC.
