Hmmm, I'm not sure what the exact question here is, but here goes. Most of the Internet remote cable release hacks are for people who are too cheap to buy the genuine Nikon cables (they figure, I'll spend some time on the Internet, get a diagram, spend some time finding the right parts, do the work, and look, I've saved $30 - I suppose time is not very valuable for these folks).
There are genuine Nikon remote cable releases. For a pro-grade system, there are often infrared/radio devices that can do the job as well.
If you have an F5/N90s, an Arca-Swiss B1 monoball, and a Nikkor 300/2.8, one would imagine that the genuine remote release would be chump change, but maybe that is not the case. I suggest calling B&H or going to your local pro shop (Nikon retailer) and just buy one.
