What is the convention for the gender assignments of D-15 video plugs/jacks. By that I mean, what is the gender of the plug/jack which is always mounted on the computer and what is the gender of the plug/jack which is always mounted on the monitor? This seems like an elementary question but few know the answer for sure without looking. And while we're at it, which is male and which is female, between plugs and jacks? Haha. No fair googling for it.
