Commercial ads get posted from time to time that are totally objectionable
(like the occasional spam) but David's message was at least on-topic, and
his company may well come in handy for someone in the future. I've spoken
to him and what they do is very interesting: it's a commercial version of
what Bob Shannon did to interface an IDE drive to his HP 2116.

Indeed. They are, after all, keeping old machines alive and in operation,
doing useful work. That's something that most people on this list cannot
claim :/
