Do NOT use multiple accounts - please trade with your regular (and only) forum account. If you're giving items away, please make it clear if you would be unhappy with the recipient selling on some or all of the items. Similarly, please ensure that the giver is comfortable with you re-selling items you have accepted as a gift. We cannot be held responsible for what happens in these trading forums or for deals done via PM. This must be done at your own risk. If you aren't comfortable with this - make the trade via an alternative site which can apply safeguards of their own. Be sensible - if someone approaches you to trade via PM who is not posting in the public forums, this may be a sign that they are not entirely what they seem. Please report it to the moderators if you receive an unsolicited message from anyone suspicious, so that it can be investigated and hopefully stop anyone being taken advantage of.

FS: (slightly OT) Legacy PC hardware

Post by johnkenyon » Fri Aug 11, 2017 9:51 am

Over the years I have accumulated a silly quantity of "legacy" PC hardware.
These are all 16 bit ISA cards:

* World's biggest pile of 3C509 (10Base2+AUI/10BaseT+10Base2+AUI)and 3C509B (All with 10BaseT+AUI, some with 10Base2 as well) (20 in total)
* Handful of 3C503 (10BaseT+AUI) - (usable in 8 bit ISA slots, so good for PC/XT). (5 off)
* Two RTL8019/NE2000 compatible NICs (10BaseT+10Base2)
All the above have been tested - shove it in a Linux box, check that DHCP+ping works, shutdown and remove.
* A single 3C507 NIC (AUI+10BaseT)
All the 3C50x cards have EPROM sockets.

* Various "multi i/o" cards (floppy, IDE, serial, parallel, game ports)
* Odd VGA cards (1xCP-5422, 1x"Number Nine"/JF9-GXE)
* A number of 8 port serial cards (2x"Rocketport 8J", 1x Specialix I/O 8+

I also have a fair amount of memory:
* 30 pin SIMM
* 30 pin SIPP (SIMM with pins) - 256k
* 72 pin DIMM (mostly 4Mb and 8Mb, EDO and FPM)

PM me with an offer if you want any individual bits - I'm looking for postage and something to cover my time taking it to the post office.
