Everything is "untested but looks OK" unless otherwise noted. More to come
later this month!

2 @ Spyrus MC Disk SCSI PCMCIA readers, in original boxes with manual,
RS/6000 AIX 3.2.5 and 4.1.1 drivers, power supply, and reader. Mostly
intended for memory cards ("SRAM, ROM, OTP, E(E)PROM, FLASH, and PC-ATA
disks (mechanical/silicon)"), but also supports "specific I/O cards". HD50
SCSI connectors, two PCMCIA slots. These were part of my long-ago plot to
get solid-state SCSI storage; unfortunately, while they would read and
write just fine, I couldn't quite get a Sun to boot from them. $5 each
plus shipping.

2 @ SIIG US2225 USB 1.1 Cardbus cards, OHCI. New in sealed boxes. Note
that like most USB cards, these require newer slots which support a full
range of voltages -- if your laptop doesn't have a USB port, it probably
doesn't support these cards either. $5 each plus shipping.

Addonics IDE Ultra DigiDrive, new in sealed box. Mounts in a 3.5" drive
bay, one PCMCIA slot for mounting apparently any card that exposes an ATA
interface to your IDE chain. Bootable, but only if your BIOS supports
booting from a Zip drive. Yet another failed experiment in solid-state
storage. $5 plus shipping.

HP "Accy CD Kit L.12.05", P/N 5064-6675. Two CDs, still shrinkwrapped. One
is "HP NetServer Online Documentation/including HP NetServer Information
Assistant", D.12.00, document ID 7737, copyright 1993-1998, P/N 5011-7024,
for the NetServer E Series, L Series, and Retired Systems; the other is
similar but hidden by the exterior label, P/N 5011-5074, whatever it is,
it's for the NetServer LXr Pro8, LXr Pro, LX Pro, LXe Pro, LH II, LH Pro,
LD Pro, and LC II. Free for shipping.

HP document, NetServer "LH 3/LH 3r Processor Upgrade Installation Guide",
P/N 5967-2106, June 1998. Free for shipping.

HP document, NetServer "LC 3 Processor Upgrade Installation Guide", P/N

controller to drive. Free for shipping.

Xircom PE3-10BT parallel to Ethernet 10baseT gizmo, with keyboard
passthrough power cable. Xircom never made 32-bit Windows drivers for this
unit, and the 16-bit drivers which their web page claimed were
Win98-compatible didn't work. If you have an old, old laptop which is
still running 16-bit Windows, this might just get you online, though. Free
for shipping.

2 @ Lexmark Optra S/SC Coax/Twinax Adapter, FRU P/N 99A0629. DE9
connector, Intel 80960 onboard. No cables. $5 each plus shipping.

when I bought it, I thought it was an SBus sound card! $1 plus shipping.

$5 plus shipping.

long gone, so this card and its manuals are now free for shipping. Last
known working.
