    Dont bend them....

    and if you do....make sure you KNOW you bent them, then unbend them.

    Applies to all SCSI ribbon cables, and I guess also to EIDE cables etc.

    I'll go get a life now.....sad I lost so many hours to it

    *sigh*

    If you get a customer, or an employee, who thinks he's Charles Bronson, take the butt of your gun and smash their nose in.

    Yes. And do not try to plug in screens without actually being able to see the VGA socket. I got it totally misaligned once, bending two pins and breaking off another on my one screen's connector.
