The 36 pin connector your talking about is a Centronics cable. Used for old printers and stuff mostly.
I know what it is...If you look at the post before yours you'll notice that i said i was answering JEOPARDY style. Again Sorry for the confusion.

Edit:

Besides most printers today still come with the Centronics connector still available. USB isn't a solve all connection. There are problems with it being flacky.
