German Connectors

Four weeks ago, I started at my new job. We build KVM switches, that is, boxes that allow you to control multiple computers from a single console or terminal (monitor, keyboard, mouse).

It's fun, especially because I get to fiddle around with all this low-level, hardware-dependent stuff, something I don't normally have any opportunity to do.

Here's a photo of an RJ45 to 9-pin SUB-D adapter. We call those "German" connectors.

(Actually we don't. I just thought it was funny.)
