Interesting! Thanks for sharing! I could probably make one "cheaper", but I couldn't make one "cheap". :)

Another approach would be to build a BC11A-equivalent cable using multiple narrower ribbon cables (as previously mentioned in this thread), and use the round-jacketed-shielded ribbon cable. The stuff isn't cheap, though, and a couple of round-jacketed 40-conductor cables probably aren't any more flexible than the Pertec tape drive cables I already have snaking about between the racks.
