My hunch is that they were referring to the gender bender for $90.

It's CDN$150, and I think around US$90. THEY made the change to the UPS serial port, THEY should supply a free cable on all orders for the new 5xx boxes. And considering what they're charging for it, it's appalling that there is still no PTF available (yet) to make it work properly. ...Neil Al Barsa <barsa@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> Sent by: midrange-l-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxxx 2004/10/06 18:19 To midrange-L@xxxxxxxxxxxx cc Subject UPS Signal Cable Problems with i5 Hi, The UPS signal cable port on the back of the system, which for years has been labeled as J14 has always been a female port. It turns out that on the 520 and 570 (I haven't seen a 550 yet) it is obviously labeled T1 and now it's male! Come on, give me a break. So when you shell out for your new i5, you also have to purchase a gender bender (obviously not included) to change your signal cable port from male to female. Was anyone thinking?
