I have seen ribbon connectors in some of the pictures on the website that connect the LCD and the breadboard together. Where can I get those?

If you saw it in a picture on these forums, they are homemade cables.

Matthew,

I hand soldered mine together. I first ripped a pin connector off a old floppy disk drive and I soldered the end to an old ribbon cable. Then I took a broken HDD ide connector and soldered the other end to it. And just plugged it into the LCD screen. Took a while but it is much faster for debugging and such for experiments.
