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.
