Indeed, Vector still makes "Vectorbords". They also make boards with various bus edge connectors called
"Plugbords". The problem with these things is that they are very expensive, imho. For example, a
prototyping board for the XT bus with edge connectors and nothing more is about $25.

This raises a question I have had for some time. What DO people use to make prototype boards with edge
connectors as an alternative to Plugbords? I ran into this very problem recently in trying to create a
prototype ROM Pac for the Exidy Sorcerer. Other than buying Plugbords or etching a PCB, the only solution
I saw was cutting up an old card and gluing the edge connectors to a prototype board. Other suggestions?
