The moment you decide to buy another copy of the exactly same card you know that you have graduated from casual mob to "are you nuts" club.
Saw this copy on my local country auction site. Could not resist. Prices will go only up, doesn't hurt to have backup. It was sold as-is but I was lucky. It is perfectly functional card (- back bracket).
It was very convenient to do multimeter health check for continuity/resistance on ISA bus contacts when you can compare. While I have cheaper ISA board for testing still it would hurt to damage it.
Note to myself: Do not damage SIMM plastic tabs with this new card, OK?
Better yet replace the sockets with new ones that have metal tabs.
