...and if you're not afraid of a little electronics, it's easy to build
your own. One MAX232 or equivalent and a few discretes is all I needed
(the connector has both 5V and 3.3V power available). Of course, you
still need to connect. I opened up the machine and soldered wires onto
the board, running them out to a connector (I used a more common
connector) through a small hole I cut in the case.
But, as I said, that assumes you're not afraid of electronics and
soldering and suchlike.
