Hello Zane,

The ones I was remembering were some Jonathan Enghdahl had
gotten. Didn't remember hearing if they were tape only, but it wouldn't
surprise me. One crazy thing on one of them though. He bid and won
one from a guy that ended up living out of the trunk of his car and wasn't
getting the part shipped. The part was still where he used to live, and
somehow he didn't have access to get back at it, and therefore wasn't
getting it shipped. When I heard from the guy about something else, I
mentioned it to him. He must have thought "wow, how did I know about
that?" That seems to have somehow gotten him to get motivated and
last I heard, I believe Jonathan did eventually receive it. Now whether it
actually worked or not, I don't know. With eBay, YMMV.

Best Regards
