Ever since the DVI cable thread recently I've been looking for DIP IDC
connectors that have the flipped pinout like the original Tandy cable has,
so you could just crimp the cable without any pain in the neck twisting
every pair of wires.
Well by now I have found 5 different manufacturers of a dip40 connector and
a 6th yet another manufacturer of a dip24 connector, and they ALL connect
pin 1 to wire 2, and pin 40 to wire 1, and so needs the twists.
That's all, just reporting findings.
