    What things are with your computer? (RANT)

    When I was onsite I always had a min set of tools with my PC. And I ALWAYS had cables, crossover... etc.... Here is where I'm going with this -- I always had my NULL MODEM CABLE. <end rant>

    Modem Cable?

    I still carry a NULL SERIAL CABLE (for iLons/Routers/Controllers etc). I used to call it a null modem cable, but haven't plugged in to a modem in 12+ years..people still use those things?

    I don't modulate/demodulate any more...

    There is a way that seems good to man, but in the end leads to death.

    Don't forget the 499&#189; ohm resistors and a couple of terminal screwdrivers in that bag.

    I'll second that.

    Anyone try them out? What's the range in the real world, ie block walls?

    Screwdriver(s), serial to RS-232b, serial to rollover, crossover, thumb drive(s), btw - I need a null modem cable - didn't need one until I forgot the password I put in some LIP's, so I had to borrow one. Verizon wireless usb modem.

    But more importantly I have a lot more tools on my truck!

    BTW - SYSINT did you get my PM?
