If anyone needs any part for an older PC or Tandy computer, try
emailing me to see if I have it. Unless I'm figuring on using the
part for something, I would probably just give it away for postage.

considered 'vintage', I have also seen a lot of projects to add
memory to 'vintage' equipment using 30 and 72 pin SIMMS.
I have a 16-bit ISA (or it may be VESA) ESDI controller that takes 30
PIN simms (I think it has 16 slots). This is a two board set with an
interconnecting bridge between the two cards.
I'd consider that board vintage to at least some extent. This
controller did striping, mirroring and cacheing under SCO and BSD
linux on 386 and 486 computers quite a few years ago. Not your
typical 486 IDE card here. It has a bar-graph LED that shows
processor utilization (on the controller) that is real neat to watch
under I/O load.
