Well I live a few miles from spiroyster so might as well pick up his card if you're coming this way :) Am sure he'll do you a good price, us country folk are well good like that! :)

I think I have stashed away a SI, SE, SSI and V6, though I'd prefer to hang onto the V6 for spares.

I don't think anything is 'close' these days when dealing with vintage computers ;)

2:15 to me and about 2:45 to spiroyster.

I'm going to pick up some bits from spiroyster soon (next week ish). I would happily offer to box up the card he's got and post it on to you if you'll cover postage? That way you don't have to lug your Octane down and add to our already polluted atmosphere....

I know he's waiting on some, um, delicate timing matters, and boxing stuff up and posting stuff on is not on his 'I'd love to do this!' list... ;)
That's if he's happy with this approach...

Sure more than happy to pay for the card and postage let me know what each expects to get for card or services

Glad the replacement card arrived in good order and you're up and running ;)
