Hi folks,

Does anyone have a monitor adapter for a Performa 6116CD? The unit has a
weird-looking about sixty-pin non-D-shell connector. It has about five
or six rows of abut ten or twelve pins each; and each of the pins and
sockets are smaller than regular computer-interconnection pins. However,
the adapter itself uses only the left or right 15 pins and terminates to
a regular 15-pin D-shell Mac monitor socket.
Lemme try my hand at some ASCII:

  / :::::::::::::::: \
 |  ::::::::::::: ::  |
 |  ::::::::::::::::  |
  \_________ /

     \ *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  /

Something like that... they're each relative to scale themselves, but
not to each other, or to the size on your computer screens (The top is
the adapter's mate on the Mac, the bottom is the monitor's mate on the
adapter) The adapter itself uses only 15 of those sockets, all on one
Electronic Discount Sales has them, but they want $25 for it. If anyone
has one cheaper, it'd be a godsend.

Let me know if you need more info...
