At about that point I'd have just about sold it to you! I'm not looking
forward to getting it out of the truck! I've got bum knees thanks to the
military, and am feeling it tonight!

I think these were all 40 pin (yes, I was standing around counting a lot of
pins). I'd hate to think there were some there and I missed them, as I
really need on.

Actually I'm hoping I've got one in the pile I did get, but I know I
didn't. Still an ESDI controller is better than what I had!

Arghhh, where the *bleep* were the monitors and keyboards? It's a good
thing I didn't see that, we were full!

Oh, great, make me kick myself! I was going to pick up the HP and forgot it.
