Here in Sydney there are Nokia 16 bit PCMCIA <-> PCI Cirrus logic chipset
cradles available from CX computers (www.cx.com.au), as well as from an
individual over here that has imported some himself.

NEWS FLASH ;) (Always wanted to do that)..

I have only been able to order 100 cards (they were tight asses in giving
their whole stock and wouldn't discount the remainder), and I am splitting
it in half with Brisbane as a finders fee so Brisbane and Sydney get 50
cards each.

Hopefully the stock should arrive in Sydney about Mon-Tue and have to wait
for customs and hopefully out by Wed'.... Which then I'd have to pay duty
it.. argh !! government !!

Sorry, wrapping and postage is a hassle for me as it is, so these orders
for Sydney pickups ONLY..

Brisbane rep (adam) and I agreed to make the cost $60 a card due to
rate the bank charged me on and the freighting etc..etc..

Also, I just got the employee at Unisys to get me another 50 PCMCIA cards
those who didn't get their orders in time can now order them.. Again, only
pick ups and a 1 month DOA warranty thanks to those Enterasys a$$#*&%#....
Same price $50 a card.
