Make a couple of good clear pictures from each side, that would be nice and a lot better than ''i have one''..

The Slot A version looks like it could be recreated by cutting up a floppy cable with 5.25" drive connectors.

On old thread revival, if it takes 10 years to find parts for 20 year old stuff, can there technically be thread necroing?

I don't think the necroing is that bad on a website like this, to keep some info at one place i think it is very logical (and helpful).
But necroing to only make a little comment (like '' i have one'') that doesn't really adds anything is not very useful.

That's why i asked about the photo's. Good, clear high-res pictures of the device is very nice i think.

Would you also like a clear photo of the Slot A Athlon 600 PCB that I accidentally destroyed with a screwdriver when my hand slipped while trying to follow these simple directions? (A few surface-mount components were knocked off and went skipping across my basement floor at 100 MPH; current whereabouts of those tiny components—unknown.) I still have another Slot A Athlon, and I'll remove this one's case using two small wedges & a hammer rather than a screwdriver.

Edit: Added photo of reverse side.
