Hello Eric,

>From the sound of this, it might be like the power cords needed
for our DEC Alpha AXP 3000 -500 and -800 They also needed
a standard ISO computer power cord BUT with a notch or groove
in it, that isn't in the standard ISO computer power cord, for the
connection in the back of the machine. Luckily though, with the Alphas,
underneath in front of the machine, where the power came from the back
of the machine to where it actually plugs into the power supply, a
non-notched cord could be plugged in. Then eventually we finally came
up with one of the notched cords. But, before you ask, we can't spare
one and only.
