While I have a few of the larger style (and some null modems like that) I grabbed onto a few of that second, smaller type and they really come in handy. Especially after spending time making that oh-so-perfect connector to find out you grabbed the wrong sex DB-9...Arrrrrg!

Back when RS-232 serial became standard every one had their own standards .
Once you took a cable out of the box it was not marked ats to what it was.
I understand it all now, but it was a hard thing to learn when the computer guru's did not know anything. Then there was the non standard cables like Commodore and others had .
