    pretty sure theres a bug in cricket 97 where if you keep mashing the appeal key it sometimes gives you the wicket.

    Hey big spender, lol

    http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/122399151371

    It's not often I buy items worth less than the postage, but it's getting pretty hard to find anything beige these days especially 5.25" to 3.5" drive bay adapters. I've seen some sellers trying to flog these off for $20 a piece so when I saw these for a couple of dollars each it was a no brainer.

    Will probably end up using one to mount a Gotek and have one spare for another project. :thumbup:

    I saw quite a few of these novelty boards back when they were new. They were almost all dead. Can't remember which brand it was but there was a gold coloured board I saw a few of. All dead. I'd be extremely hesitant to buy any of these.

    This one may be my fault Power. The soldering is very fine, so it does not take much overlap another section. In effect I have a doubling atm.
    +7 volt where it should be half that. 3300uF caps in 10mm diameter are hard to get unless bulk = $$$ So I've struggled on with the 12.5mm wide ones.

    Those Soyo will be plenty collectible later. :Pirate: Not there yet

    Especially if they work, Soyo are not a great brand.
