This is silly. If you had gotten multiple heartfelt "thanks" for an
unsolicited and, by your admission, off-topic tip, I would have fainted.

Check the archives, about once every other month someone moans about the
cost of the OEM cable and several links to reasonably prices cables are
posted. Never seen more than the occasional single "thanks" when a link
was requested, and I'm not sure why anyone would be expected to thank you
for a link to something they don't need.

I'm glad you have other "kinder gentler" lists to read, because this is a
list filled with geeks and hackers and the discussion is decidedly more
likely to go off into specifications/protocols/potential hacks than an
orgy of gratitude. (for which your request was a first in my long and
varied ML experience)

Chris
