Wow - are the related materials that hard to come by? I did ask the
"computer" guy if he had anything more and he looked at me as though I
was speaking a rare dialect of a long-dead language. After a few
minutes of protocol negotiation, he explained that all he did was "plug
them in and turn them on - if they work, I price them and put them on
the shelf". The Apple this card came from was "dead", so he stripped
out all the cards and put them out for sale. Everything else (manuals,
floppies, everything) went to the compactor - he didn't have a way to
test any of the floppies that came with the unit, so out they went... >sigh<

He did let me root around their back room for a few minutes - scored a
NeXT cube for a dollar.
