No, that's an adapter because I can't take the whole shebang and plug
it into a 30-pin SIMM.  See what I mean?  It adapts 30-pin SIMMS to
72-pin SIMMs.  That's great if I'm moving from a 30-pin SIMM mobo to a
72-pin SIMM mobo, but what if I just want to cram more memory onto my
30-pin SIMM mobo and don't want to shell out $$$ for high density
30-pin SIMMs?  (Yeah, I know there are issues with physical clearance
on adjacent SIMM slots, let's just leave that aside for the moment.)
