Is 'ADB'? It would be
the right connector for that.
Absolutely correct. I think that I make more typos than anybody else
Err, not while I'm on the list you don't :-)

THAT one is labelled "RS232C"!!!
I asusme it's the PC/AT serial port wiring. Althought i thought that
RS232C actually specified the DB25 conenctor.
As an aside, at the recent HPCC conference, I set a little puzzle, namely
to figure out what a circuit was used for. I geve the schematic and
pointed out (truthfully) that the input as a DB25 socket, that pins 1 and
7 were groudned and that it was a standard interface. Of coure everyone
assumed it was RS232, and quickly got in a tangle. It was actually RS366
(the autodialer interface).
(therefore, I don't trust the [factory] labelling
of anything of them)
If I put it on eBay, I'd better call it "DB15 to DB9"
Given that there are 2 15 pin D conencotrs, that is hardly a useful (and
of ocurse totlalyu inaccurate) description.
Also have an adapter DE9F to DA15M, with 6 switches on the side.
Sounds liek a Mac monitor adaptor. The DIP swithches set the video mode IIRC.
cord with 2 round pin mains plug
Maybe a German mains lead. The plug itself is
almost round, with 2 round
pins. There are earthing cotnacts on the sides of the plug body
cord with mains plug 2 straight blades in a line, with
perpendicular ground blade "13A 250V" "Fused"
a UK (BS1363) mains plug. The 'blades;' should be quite
thich rectanguar pins, with the earth pin larger in all 3 dimensions to
the others. The fuse is a 1" long cartridge fuse either inside the plug
9if it's not moulded to the cable) or under in a holder on the pin face
of the plug.
Do you want them?
Alas not.I susepct Ihave even less sapce than you do.
Moulded cables are not useful for modificaiton, the only use is if you
have the evece they work with. As for the power cables, I have forgotten
just how many IEC cables with UK 13A plugs I own, suffice it to say that
they re not rare (it's also very easy to buy them here). The German one
is not useufl, as I don;t have many German sockets.
Actually, non-UK mains sockets are useful, for plugging things in which
have other mains plugs that uou eitehr don't want to change, or more
likely can't cange (perehaps it's a wall wart). So I have US (117V and
234V), German and various older UK sockets on extension leads here.
