Long exposure Serial-Port cable for Canon EOS 400D

I've just built this serial-port cable based on an idea by Michael A. Covington, it works a treat. I can now do long exposures remotely from my PC indoors.

The software that I'm using to control the camera comes from Stark-Labs, and is called DSLR Shutter (see screenshot below), it's brilliant.

All the parts were bought from my local Maplin store.
