That makes sense. *Somebody* paid a lot of money for them. It's
gratifying to see Linux drivers for the PC side.

Nice page! I haven't seen this guy's stuff before. Makes me want to
go out and start fixing my pair of Straight-8s (need *much* cleaning
first - they used to run a typesetter at a newspaper).

I wasn't envisioning a card _that_ fancy, but it'll do. I'd be happy
with a simple, simple RAM card.
