Re: MOS 6525 and 6523A's

Gents, I've ordered 30 x 6525A's and 10 x 6523A's. (sadly no luck on the 
6510T and 6523T, sorry Gerrit)

As I've just parted with over $400, I'll be a bit nervous until they 
arrive, which I expect to be in about 2 weeks. Annoyingly, the 6525 in 
my B series are all soldered, I could have sworn that one of them was 
socketed. It will therefore require a bit of extra effort to check them 
before I pass them on. Does anyone happen to know if the ones in 1551's 
are typically soldered?

I'm going to keep 3 or 4 for myself and I will try to allocate the rest 
fairly based on people's requests, assuming they test good. Any leftover 
I will pass on to Jim for the good of the community.

There appears to have been a bit of a misunderstanding regarding the 
8501's. In my original post I said that I had ordered some from them in 
the past, not that they had any this time around. Nevertheless, I do 
still have a few left, so I will pass on some to those that really want 
some, but I don't have enough to fulfil everybody's requests.

Finally, I am off on holiday for 3 weeks from early July, so it may be a 
while before I'm ready to distribute them. I'll post updates here with
