Yes, the auction description is near to spam. I had to press the PgDn key 13 times to get to the bottom (1152x864 resolution)... A link to some site with docs, like hpcalc.org , or since some weeks to here (MoHPC) would be better.

The seller has many non-working links in his auction description, most of them to other eBay seller sites. What a mess...

Thanks Daniel

I asked him to credit the material and he did. I too wonder whether that much text in an auction is a selling point. Whenever I see that much text clearly pulled from some website, I look it all over for a "(Not selling product described)" type message hidden inside.
