We've been working on some deals for PCI <-> PCMCIA cradles here in
Sydney. We are waiting on another 100 cards to become available, but I am
not sure when. The last lot we were getting for $55 AUD each.

I can get PCI <-> CardBus Ricoh chipset cards for just around $100 (give
or take, I have been given an estimate).
