Just my 2 cents as a fellow 1000 (2113E) owner that wasn't offended by his post.  1st, they're his boards.  2nd, they're essentially useless MUX boards.   The only value they might have to me is in the individual parts populating the boards themselves, which might be cannibalized to save useful boards.

Not everything can be saved.
