Yes, and when you end up frying your calc, I bet you can easily build
another one yourself for a fraction of the cost ($100). It is a _far_
better idea to invest in a graphlink, or build yourself the Connect85
hardware. Both of these are more expensive to build/make, but offer
protecion for your calc which $4/$5 cables don't.
