WTB (Australia): Sun Ultra 1 UPA card or similar

Discussion in 'Sun Hardware' started by rachel polanskis, Jul 14, 2004.

  1. Hi,
    I am in Australia but I urgently need a replacement UPA graphics card
    for a Sun Ultra 1.

    The problem is, my partner has an Ultra 1 that seems to have a card fault,
    but his supervisor won't replace it - instead they want to use it as an
    excuse to move him onto Windows 2000. This is not what we want to do,
    since he's a UNIX head and he'd be better off with an an etchasketch than
    the Gates Virus and probably more productive, too.

    So, we have decided to self-fund a replacement card for his Ultra, in order
    to stop the silliness of him moving to W2K.

    Can anyone please help me?

    The system is your basic Ultra 1/170 with the generic Creator 2D UPA format
    card slot. It's been running fine for the past 5 years without a single
    maintenance call until a day ago.

    We were going to buy a complete Ultra 1 from Melbourne but the guy won't
    ship it to Sydney nor part out any cards. Sun, of course want to charge a
    fortune for a card they can only get themselves from a reseller now.

    If anyone has a spare UPA card suitable for the U1/170, or similar,
    can they please let me know? We are happy to pay a few dollars for it
    or I can swap something else or whatever.

    Please help a couple of Sun fans stop the Windows invasion (as much as we can).

    Check with Jason Morgan at 636-443-1999.

    I just bought a 501-4173 card from him for $15.00 USD plus $6 shipping
    locally. Their international shipping rates are somewhat higher.
