Rumor has it that Paul Koning may have mentioned these words:

I quit looking about 4-5 years ago - as of then, D-K and mouser didn't
stock 'em. (Obviously, mini-DIN won't work... ;-) )

And yes, at least in the catalog, they seem like the right critters...

Same with the (and Tony's gonna blast me, but I don't know the correct
nomenclature) DB-19 (is it a DF-19 maybe?) that the Falcons used for their
video out...

And the Atari ST video port... and the DMA port... ;-) which it seems
either they don't carry, or their search function can't find 'em. Oh well,
I guess you can't win 'em all...
