You can do it, the 9 thicker serial port pins nicely bend the piss out of
the 15 vga pins. Had to charge a user for the repairs on a 3 wk old 19"
monitor for the cost of sending it back to KDS for a new cable, one pin was
bent so bad it broke off. Not the usual thing though - I see a lot of RJ11
telephone plugs stuck into the RJ45 network card jacks. Boy that does a
number on the NIC and the phone system.
