Hello folks-

I'm new to this list, but I wanted to let you know that I am currently
using a 50 ft cable on my color QC.
The only trick was to use a power adapter to run the 5 vdc to the camera
instead of the keyboard adapter.  I am getting great quality, and it is
nice to be able to get it away from the computer.  I'm going to use this
set-up for a cyber-cafe that I'm going to be opening in about a month. 

   I was wondering if anyone knows the pin layout on the serial cable? I'm
looking for a pair of un-used pins that I could run the power through, so
all you would have was one cable going to the camera, and the power would
plug in on the computer side.
