Make Your Own PICAXE USB Program Cable

Hi everyone!

I was just wondering if anyone else has made their own PICAXE program transfer cable?

I had all the equipment to make one, 2.5mm stereo jack, colour coded wire, a usb plug and soldering equipment; so I thought i'd give it a go!

The connections for the PICAXE cable seemed very simple (having only Serial in, Serial Out and Ground) and knowing that a usb's connections were quite similar (Ground, Data+, Data- and Vcc) so I tried to match them up.
