a few folks have asked about this, so i though i'd briefly clarify:

as you know, these modules have pcb mounted power supply jacks, which 
a power cable plugs into on the board, and then the other end plugs 
into whatever power supply distribution system you have. on the pcb 
end, the power cable is *standard* on all modules. on the distro end, 
they are 3 pin custom molex connectors (i.e. blacet style; the blacet 
module's cable is not modified) which plug into my custom molex-based 
distro system. to use these modules, you can simply buy a new cable 
with standard plugs on both ends or wire them however you wish.

so, nothing was done to the module or the pcb itself...just the cable.

follows an evil thought as the wheels of a cart follow the oxen that 
draws it. Our life is shaped by our mind; we become what we think. 
Joy follows a pure thought like a shadow that never leaves.
