Evidentally the male or female issue of the 25 was ignored too. Since most
IBM/compats use the male on the machine, I still see older machines with female
25's for serial ports, such as on the back of the Sr. Partner I have here. I know
many other machines have prts that are stated to be in compliance with the RS-232
standard but only in signal compatibility, not connector type.
