The 4000T has IDE! I have one of those CF card to IDE boards on a back 
expansion slot, allowing it to be removed.

That is crazy. To buy something to "mark to market" the price real high 
... you would still have to pay the crazy eBay fees.

There was a late model Adlib card in original box (not sealed) that went 
for $3900 that had people scratching their head. But who knows. I think a 
Nintendo game went for $300K. Some people have way more money than I for 
this hobby that's for sure :-) Pinball machines / arcades are the same.
