Symbolics, Inc., today, is three guys who work part time.  They've long 
since sold out of MacIvory IIIs, UX-1200s, and NPX-1000s.

However, they'll still sell you a UX-400 and the associated software, for
less than the cost of a MacIvory II. No warranty or support beyond DoA, 
however, as apparently no one remembers anything about the UX-400 and 
1200 boards.

The UX-400 should work in any VME system running SunOS 4, 68k or SPARC.
