    We have substantial problems with bent pins - it is a major headache
    for our technical support group.  And a very costly one.  

    We are currently discussing using the "mini Centronics" for our
    high-end subsystems because it has become such a problem.

    Very sympathetic.  We are all stuck with these stupid pin connectors
    because there were two different types of "mini centronics" being
    pushed at the SCSI meetings and when a vote was called the "mini"
    camp was split - kinda like the last Pres. Election.....
