What is a reliable Web site in the US from which to buy secondary market printer memory, for kind of an old laser printer, where they won't steal your credit card number? Thanks.

I don't know about the memory part of the question, Brandon, but I've been internet shopping for about four years and never had a problem like this. Actually, excluding gasoline, rent, and food, I probably do 80% of my spending over the internet. The only problem I ever had was a vendor that accepted an order to my PO Box and unsuccessfully tried to charge more for shipping than the amount specified in the order they accepted.

I wonder, though, if it would be possible to get one of your existing card carriers to issue a second card with a comfortably low limit, so you could limit your exposure. I might try this myself, come to think of it.

Oh, I shop all over the Internet too, and pay my bills there. It just makes me nervous that some of the places I'm finding the memory chip I want have names like "Bob's Discount Memory Clearinghouse and Grill."

Uh, yeah, that might do it for me too.

Try shopping Amazon, then. They won't have it themselves, but some of their related vendors might, and the card transactions are through Amazon, I believe.

Tried it. The printer (Canon LBP-430) is a little too old. Ditto for Half.com. So far I've only found it at places that are kind of fly-by-night.

A quick google with the type of printer reveals it is a 72 pin NON parity simm, 4mb is the max on a 430 it appears. Very old memory. This stuff was used in the 386 and early 486.

I found it here

You might be able to buy it used for a couple of dollars from a local used computer place near you if they have some lying around.
