Nate Moore discovered something in a desk drawer that we both thought worth posting: if nothing else because we’d love to find out what on Earth it’s for.
It’s a “computer accessory” – these are literally the only words printed in its box – that looks like it fits a computer’s parallel port (back when computers had them).
The fun thing is that the other side of the plug is sealed!
Maybe you’re meant to pierce and wire in a cable? Or maybe it’s to terminate the port to avoid electrical discharge of some kind?
If anyone has any idea what this is for, please post a comment. I’d be more than happy to ship it to anyone who would like it, but I somehow doubt anyone has a need for it. Do let me know, in case!
