I had no such luck at either Comp or Best Buy. I
worked for both of those places (in a former life many
years ago :) and i can't imagine either one carrying
such an item, especially Best Buy.
They had cables with a 36 pin Micro Centronics on one
end and a 36 pin full size Centronics on the other? or
were they Micro Centronics on one end and regular
parallel on the other?
What part of the country were these stores in?
