I know this is a late response (I didn't see your posting until now), but, yes, 
I'll take a handful (dozen?).

I find that I not only use these PCMCIA ethernet/modem cards...I use them *UP* 
and they occassionally die on me.  Still, I find that using a couple of old 
Pentium class laptops for my basement web and email servers is the way to go.  
(This topic was a recent discussion item a month or so ago.)  They come with 
their own UPS (battery pack) and they are quiet, and draw very little juice.  
So, yeah, I'll take a stash of potential replacement network cards, dongles 
would be nice.  For some reason a 24/7 situation with these kind of PCMCIA cards 
tends to wear them out over a 6 to 12 month span.  I just had to replace one a 
month ago.  A handy stash would be very welcome.

Let me know if you were able to snag these cards, and we'll work out pickup 
arrangements.  I'm actually in Utah County.
