    Bad idea.

    The tinsel conductors in most phone cords won't carry enough current to
work properly on Kaypros. I used to get them in all the time when I had a
Kaypro dealership. Replaced the phone cord with the proper one and it
almost always fixed the problem. Don't know where you could find
heavier-gauge coil cords today -- maybe you could crimp up a "straight"
cable just to get it working.
