The print in the ad says this.  I am not picking on
you, and the picture is of a PCMCIA card, isn't it?

In bold print in the ad it says PCMCIA.

I have two PCMCIA cards for different purposes and
this one in the picture looks like the two I have
(although not a serial adapter).

I have installed PC cards that plug into the back or
side of a mother board.  I use PCMCIA cards that plug
in the side of my laptops.  I don't see this ad
showing me a card that plugs into the motherboard as a
"PC" card does.  It looks like a PCMCIA card that
plugs into the card slot in my laptop.  Maybe I need
to get more education on what these "cards" are and
what they do.  

I read your post.  I am just commenting on what I saw
in the ad.

Of course, the buyer beware.
