So, it turned out that with "tomorrow" I meant "almost one year later". I found
my BigRAMPlus now and my Amiga 4000 is up and running at home now - except I'm
not home at the moment.
Depending on how the Covid-19 situation develops the next days, I will be back
home and install the BigRAMPlus and verify whether it can be used as RAM these
Would be great to have 384 MB RAM in my Amiga 4000 ;).
