Yes I looked at that, the problem is that it's not a whole HIPPI 
interface. The J90 uses two boards, one for TX and one for RX, to 
implement its HIPPI interface.

Cray has been selling a lot of stuff on eBay lately.


What makes me giggle a little is the auction description for the HIPPI board. First they say "This is a complete card intended to be non-functional for display or collectable purposes" then they say "Will be shipped in an esd safe bag".

At least they are putting stuff out into the public domain. Perhaps someone should contact Cray inc them about direct rescue projects for more complete systems *hint* *hint*
