Please excuse the off topic post. I'm looking for a couple of things
that I thought people on this list might have laying around their junk
bins. I usually just buy stuff on ebay, but I've been having trouble
finding some of these items (or knowing that I've found them).
I'm looking for an antique 3com card: the 3C589. I have the B, C, D,
E versions of this card, but not the 'A' card. I'm also looking for a
few dongles for the C, D and E versions of this card as well (I have 7
of these cards w/o any dongles that I'd like to sell to help pay for
other cards I've bought). I'm also looking for a 3C562C/3C563C
ideally with dongles. I have the A, B and D variants.
I'm also looking for more obscure ethernet and ethernet + modem cards.
Obscure here means 'not supported by the FreeBSD system currently, but
should be.' AND that I don't already have in my collection (see
http://people.freebsd.org/~imp/CardStatus.html for most of the list).
I'm looking for a Hermes II or Hermes II.5 wireless PC Card card.
These are PC Card 802.11b cards made for a short while. They will
have a manufacturer ID of 0x0156 and a product id of 0x0003 or 0x0004
(most wireless cards have 0x0002, to indicate they are Hermes I
cards). The trouble with buying off of ebay is that I don't know if
I'll get the classic version or the new version. I'd like to get the
FreeBSD driver working before I try to play with a Zipit I've ordered.
I'd like a sony 16V power supply for a PCG-505TS. I know that many
different ones will work (including the PCGA-AC16V6 I have for my sony
Z1). I don't use the machine much these days, as it is a little slow,
but I do use it for testing and having a good power supply would be
helpful. These are relatively easy to find on ebay, but since the old
sony laptops tend to fail, I thought I'd see if someone here had an
I'm also looking for a few extra hours in the day. However, I doubt
anybody would have those they can give me :-)
