I just gave four of those to my sister who is going to ship them to Wouter.
I did not find it too hard to upgrade my Quadra 840AV with them? If you had
said something, I could have ordered some for you (again). But them, I am
still waiting for the reimbursement of the first lot of memory upgrades (not
the ones for you personally), but I am willing to tell you the "secret" place
where I ordered them. Under $10 a piece plus shipping.
BTW, Michael, I also gave my sister two FPM SIMMS (I hope) for q650(?) and
one 32MB EDO for kullervo. If you tell me a mailing address, she will ship
it to you.
