Ah, changes in hardware standards are the way of the world. I have some ISA
cards lying around still, but no machines which could possibly use them (:

I didn't realize IDE was no longer being provided, though. I bought a new
top-of-the-line computer last year and it still had them. Oh well, they had to
go sometime (: I think the last time I was annoyed about such a change was when
you couldn't get floppy drives anymore..
