I have 8, 16m 30 pin sims in an old dual Pent 75 server I used as a
web server long ago. Not quite within the 10 year rule yet, but real close.
It ran NT3.51 and Bob Denny's Website pro to host about a dozen
domains in the old days .
How about 30 pin sips, they look like sims but have pins not pads.
They date from a short period of time before sim sockets were available.
256k or they could be piggybacked into 512k. Now they make the
10 year rule easily as they were first seen on high end video cards and
I have 4 megs of them in my first 386/16's.
