Fix for Sticky OBD/ENet Cables from One Stop Electronics

As others have found the cables from One Stop Electronics are really difficult to get out of the OBD port of the car. After 4-5 rounds of coding and being forced to briskly yank the cord out with a pair of pliers, I decided to fix the cable.

I used a dremel to cut off the small protrusion on the cable. The cable now detaches with a gentle tug on the plug, but is secure enough that it should not come undone during the coding process. Hope this is helpful to others with sticky cables.
