We've got a buttload of the 10-pin -> DB25 adapters still in the wrapper at 
work.  I bet my boss wouldn't mind unloading them to free up closet space :)

As others have said, PLEASE take the time to make a CD-ROM work.  So much more 
worth the while.

I may have some of these, some SCSI F/W Diff cards, and maybe some TR cards 
that I could probably snag if I try hard enough.  We've still got a double 
buttload of 7012-3xx machines up on a rack in the warehouse just to gather 
dust, and maybe a half buttload of 6091-19's (I think) to go with them.  
There was talk at one time of doing a quick inventory and throwing them on 
Ebay.  Most of the 7012s have no drives (for security, though I still have 
the drives in a box somewhere) and I can't guarantee the health of the 
6091s... most of the ones you'll find these days are dimmer than dog poo.

Maybe I should revive the Ebat idea.
