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
days now.

Would be great to have 384 MB RAM in my Amiga 4000 ;).
