Like Kitz, I suspect this is not a serious enquiry, but if it is, go to your local Maplin store, they have cables and connectors for everything.

Theres been quite a few of these over the past week or so.

Pattern is the same.
~ Sign up on a russian/ukraine IP.
~ Put a few spam links in the signature.
~ Make 3 posts in quick succession.
~ Products linked to are overseas, which Im pretty sure most of our readers dont want/need anyhow.


Usually the questions are a bit silly, or posts that are not quite relevant to this type of forum, and I really dont want our forum users wasting time trying to answer a question that the OP wont even come back again to check on.
In all likelyhood these types of posts are made by some guy sat in an internet cafe in the eastern block who is being paid to sit and join forums and make a few posts with spam links in the sigs.

Forum mods have already removed several of these types of posts over the past few weeks.

Doesn't it make a refreshing change to have Admin/Moderators who are on the ball


And isn't it nice to be able to say that without being jumped on  >:D  :police:

I like the 'bowing down' picture. Perhaps we should require all participants to use it. :D

It could mean we're graven idols, but I suspect in my case it means gravely idle.

It is a shame that these scum get onto forums such as these and for what? a few spam links.

The internet is becoming an ever more abused place, and the coming of all this web 2.0 nonsense will only make it easier and hence worse.

I can remember a time when our Windows 98 PC used to be on BT Internet dial-up without any anti-virus or firewall software and was always OK. These days a PC would be infected within a matter of minutes with some kind of unwanted software.
