I bought 10 EPROMS for $4.40 each today. That is substantially less than I have been paying to the distributors.


The deal I found was also a few hundred miles away so shipping will be fast. I like being able to keep a few different PROM

versions around without having to erase and re-burn them constantly. Ten is enough to keep some low-level diagnostic

PROMs around as well as several different builds/baud rates. FYI :-)
