        This has been bugging me for a while. NeXT mono monitor cables have
a D connector with 19 pins at either end. They are (apparently) in pretty
short supply relative to mono NeXT systems. Does anyone know the real
designation for those connectors, and whether it's practical to think about
building substitute cables?
        I'm still worried that this issue may become particularly relevant
Sunday evening when Curt unloads his $1k stack of NeXT systems.
