  Yeah! Sounds nice doesn't it! A pentium CPU AND a 64180 CPU!!  Actually I
made a mistake. I was operating from memory and I thought the brand name
was Sunshine but it's actually Sunrise. I spotted them (2) in a scrap yard
yesterday and wasn't sure what they were. But after finding the brief
description at the URL above I decided to grab them and try them out. I
went back this morning and brought them both home. I JUST got in and
haven't even taken them out of the car yet. FWIW according to the labels on
them they were used for some elctronics system on the FA-18. Keeping my
fingers crossed that they still work and that I can use them.
