Thanks! I'll give it a try. The boards are outside in plastic
covered boxes; surely no worse than when I removed them from my car's
trunk. :-) I just hope the old 1970's era HP keyboard is ok; I just
remembered that it's in on of those boxes too.

At this time, I'm still recovering from cleaning up over 100 Sun
VME-bus boards nearly four years ago that were filled with dust, dirt
and spiders (the former owner kept the boards in a big stack under his
front porch), although the biggish spiders have returned, and are now
in my garage and basement.

As to the CDC boards: lesson learned. Clean up any spilled keep horse
feed in a car trunk that has rust-holes in it, large enough that much
smaller four-footed critters, that squeak, might get through... and
don't leave computer equipment in the trunk.

Best regards,
