    Ugh, like, I could, as a profit making exercise, but like AndrewBT, they're well before my interest time. I wouldn't even know what to do with them.

    I've sent them a message to see if they actually still exist, they may just be slow taking down the ad.

    No good guys...

    "Sorry, there have been a few before you. Just waiting to finalise a sale before taking the ad down."

    It's all over!

    There appear to be DOS drivers for them: https://archive.org/details/PRODOS

    Worth a go I reckon. If it doesn't work out, I'll be able to dig out an older PCI or ISA NIC for you.

    Dell D600 Pentium M laptop for $59pp, this should have a Radeon Mobility 9000 32MB so could be a bit of fun: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/185365020016
    The CMOS battery is flat but easy to remove in these (hidden behind a flap in the main battery compartment).

    Seller also has a 14" CRT TV from the 80s, an Akai CT-K115 for $65 (pickup only in Gippsland though). Looks to have a composite input: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/185371080174

    Another one of those ESS business wavetable cards which are a pretty bodacious ISA sound option: https://www.ebay.com/itm/255486930765

    This seller has a bit of interesting stuff, not all priced as well as this card but not too bad.

    EDIT: whoops I was looking at US dollars thinking they were AU, actually pretty expensive :lol:

    I'd say ~$50 posted is pretty good for an ISA wavetable soundcard. :)

    I really like how the Compaq Business Wavetable sounds and setting it up was a breeze - great card!

    Yep, love 'em. He'd probably sell it fast at twice the price if he put wavetable in the title.
