"Glue Thread" --> Software Dimensions, Inc Firmware ID Card

In looking around eBay today, I found an Auction for a Firmware Card from "Software Dimensions, Inc". ( see attached picture )

Further Searching located the this info at Worldcat:

Accounting plus general accounting system reference manual .
Author: Software Dimensions Inc.
Publisher: Citrus Heights, CA : Software Dimensions, Inc., ©1981.
Edition/Format: Book : English

And this Info from Usenet, at Mac GUI:

Software Dimensions Firmware ID card sw-15006. What is it?

So in Weaving all the Threads Together, it appears that the Firmware Card is a Hardware Protection device for a General Accounting System made by Software Dimensions Inc., who was Acquired by ASK Corporation, who was then Acquired by Computer Associates.

As an interesting note, the Firmware Card on eBay is located in Citrus Heights, California, United States, which is where Software Dimensions Inc. was located.. I wonder if someone was cleaning out there closet?

The better joke is the following:
what is the use for a card that ( similar to a dongle ) just permits you to use a software that is completely outdated with old taxlists and old loanlists from the 80´s ???

And it can be ALL YOURS, for the Low Price of $39.99 ( USD ) and Free Shipping ( But maybe not Internationally )

But seriously.. I posted this so that Future ( Apple ) Historians would discover its True Value.....
