Is MicroMac still in business? I want to upgrade a Mac SE to an 030.

Seem to recall a few years back (or maybe a lot of years back) someone trying to order from them and not having any success.
It's such a rare upgrade, you could probably track down an SE/30 for less than the cost of the MicroMac board.
Sonnet Tech is still in business, but they don't list any 68K upgrades on their site. Maybe worth checking if they have one or two left in the back, though.
Yeah, I have a SE/30 and a "Mystic" Color Classic. I just wanted to upgrade my SE for $49. Sounded like a good deal.
MicroMac is no longer in business. They haven't in a long time. Who is paying to keep their site up is something I cannot answer, but you won't be able to buy anything from them.
I do know that a small vintage computer shop here in Japan by the name of NEXTRO purchased most of MicroMac's inventory some years ago, and NEXTRO still has stock of various items like the MicroMac DiiMO SE/30 accelerator even now. I know this because I purchase one from them some years ago and I still visit their website from time to time.
You can read more about this in the description I wrote under my DiiMO photo here:
I called MicroMac today. A very rude man, with a vaguely German-sounding accent, answered the phone. Didn't even say it was MicroMac until I asked him. I asked him a support question, and he said I would have to pay for tech support by the hour. Their website hasn't been updated since 2000. Frankly, I don't know why or how they are still in business. It all seems very fishy to me.
I was wondering about the MicroMac prices that were shown as a 256k Cache SIMM can now be bought for 25 cents. They have the 1 Meg Cache SIMM for $99.00 each. Whew!
