Fred, I would love to experiment with these to see if I can get my animation
rate up to 60Hz (currently 30Hz with some buffering) on my 5150. Please email
me off-list to discuss terms. I have SCSI disk so that's an option; I would
also love to experiment with EMS (I wrote EMS routines many moons ago so I know
how the boards work).
