Shipping for them would have to be 10 (I dunno if I can ship in anything smaller than flat rate and still be cheaper). I will be available until 12:30 EST, at which time I w...

I connected it to my Win98 box a second ago and it lit up. I can't test it any more though because my network is down atm. It has ...

I'm just going to list a few of the things I have, ...
