Stingray card for free to a tech who is smar(er?)

I would like to offer my Stingray memory card to anyone qualified to fix

I've always had memory problems with my Sparcstation 4/330 and the
stingray is no exception. Suspecting that cold solder joints might be
the root, I resoldered the SIMM connections on this card. Testing shows
this action rendered the card useless. Stingrays being fairly rare, I
offer mine to someone smarter than I am to make it useful again.

All you pay is shipping.

Boy do I feel dumb.

Again, no charge, just send me an envelope or a box and it is yours.
