I have been following this thread with much interest, and I decided
that this would be nice for my 11/03. I have the UC07 and a CF card
plus IDE->CF adapter, so that adapter (eBay item # 350044078177)
would be very nice!
And $30 is OK with me, but the seller has a rather limited view of
the world ... I live in The Netherlands.
Is somebody on the list going to buy 1 (or more) of these adapters?
If so, could you order one more for me? May be you get a discount :-)
Shipping one to me in a bubble enveloppe is not too costly, I can pay
immediately via PayPal. Of course PayPal costs, shipping costs and
some extra "compensation" added ...
