I grabbed this one. Expect to see ROM dumps and hi-res

board at some point :)
I hope the Apollo board came packaged better than the monochrome video
card I bought from the same guy. The MDA card came wrapped in a white
plastic garbage bag. It also appears to have been abused and has lots of
bent/shorted IC pins on the solder side of the board. Kinda makes me glad
I didn't get the Hercules MDA card he had too now that I've seen what this
board looks like.
On the upside, I also snagged the IBM keyboard cable he had listed, which
was perfect for my spare cable-less Model M that I've had sitting for over
a decade. After a good cleaning the cable doesn't look half bad. It has a
few ink stains, but I've seen far worse, and the SDL plug latches are
intact, so it should work just fine.
