rack wiring: 8-pin mini DIN angst

Almost completed the wiring of the rack (except the patch panel foot switch connectors which I am leaving for the moment). No problem with the XLR connectors, quarter inch phones, MIDI cables, barrel connectors… then I hit a major snag with the 8-pin mini DIN panel socket for the Mac serial connector. Too small, too fragile, too many wires, too much… arghhh.

Well, I needed to rethink this, and since I don’t want to spend too much more time on it, I went and purchased a Mac serial extension cable instead. Life is far too short, and my time is better spent elsewhere.
