I am selling my standard parallel link for $8.75 CAN and the dual connect
parallel link (the one where you can hook up the printer as well as the
link to the parallel port) for $14.00 CAN.  I do not charge any tax; the
tax for the parts have been included.  The cable I was referring to was a
6' long cable (1.83 metres) that, instead of an extension type cord where
there is a 3.5mm jack -> 3.5mm socket, this is a cord with a 3.5mm jack ->
3.5mm jack.  You will also need the 3.5mm socket -> 2.5mm jack converter,
but get it built into the cord if you can (3.5mm jack -> 2.5mm jack).  This
is the format the link goes:

----|                              |        |
com |--|-------------|     |  calc  |
put |  |             |     |________|
er  |  |  parallel   |  6.0ft  ||2.5mm
    |  |    link     |=========++
LPTx|  |             |3.5mm

As you can see, the link hooks directly onto the parallel port, reducing
the need for an expensive computer cable when you can use a low-cost dual
3.5mm jack stereo cable.  The dual connect parallel link is as follows:

----|                              |             |
com |--|-------------|     |    printer    |
put |  |             |     |_______________|
er  |  |  parallel   |         ||Centronics
    |  |    link     |=========++
LPTx|  |             |DB25 male
____|           ||3.5mm         | calc |
                ||                      |______|
                ||   6.0ft                 ||

I have not tested this format yet, but I will before I sell them.  Thank
