Without looking at your email address, it took me a moment to figure out
where you were... I'm up in Sault Ste. Marie, MI right on the Canadian
Border. Wonderful place until you're looking for classic computers --
prolly 1/2 of them in a 50-mile radius are in my basement... ;-)

Yep... As the ascii graphic (while pretty) is not completely informative,
if it's three mini-coax in IIRC a DB shell, it could be the same cable as
is used on some DEC machines, notably some of the older RISC boxen & the
DEC 3000/300 (which I have)...

Unforch, I only have the 1 cable, and it's my wife's machine -- she gets
angry when she doesn't get the Internet... ;-)

Find yerself a DEChead or two, and they may have a cable to fit... and some
older multisync Mac monitors with the 3-BNC input might work with it as

If at first you don't succeed, nuclear warhead
