You are digging through your old tech closet and you come across a cable that seems vaguely familiar but you can’t place it.  Worse, someone hands you an old PC from a system builder that has long gone extinct with some sort of bizarre looking PCI slot that has a very important and very dead expansion card in it.  Thanks to MAKE:Blog you can access the handy Computer Hardware Poster that will show what the cast majority of slots, sockets and assorted other hardware looks like.  If you spot something missing and can take a hig quality photo, the maker of the sheet is looking for more additions.

“Sonic840 posted a nice visual reference for computer hardware sockets & connectors over at DeviantArt. As the author notes in the comments, there’s even more that could be added – still definitely handy as is.”
