Wayback Wednesday: The ISA Hardcard circa ~1990

Ahhh – the Plus HardCard.  I remember installing a number of these on our Compaq 486 series machines in the early 90’s.  These were great!

I remember thinking “Wow, hard drives have come a long way where they can fit on an ISA card!”  Oh, technology, you make me feel so old.
