It went to the whole list. Good save! :-)

DAK seemed to have the best prices on batteries. The serial cable
is easy to make if you can get a 9-pin mini-DIN connector. 9-pin mini-DINs
are, for some reason, rather scarce. One of the list subscribers scoured
all of Europe looking for them! The only place I found them in the US was
through a custom cable supplier here in Silicon Valley. They get them
from a supplier somewhere in Florida. Details are in the UltraLite digest #20
(the particular message was dated 12/14/91). The connector came as part of
a cable, which you'd need to cut up and then add your own DB25 or DB9
connector.
