Wow, no kidding. I considered it... but then I lied down until the feeling passed.

Hello,

It *IS* possible, just look at John's auction.
I've asked him how to make this magic work...

Edit : answer removed.

A single cable that must be hand made you mean?

Was not sure if there was a straight out of the box solution.

Does the auction's "buy it now" price strike you as reasonable?
